Three vectors are expressed in terms of other three vectors(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

in the form of

a=a1α + a2β + a3γ

b=b1α + b2β + b3γ

c=c1α + c2β + c3γ

How to show that a.(bxc) = λ α.(βxγ) and find out λ?

I knew the first part where we carry out dot and product rule for vectors a.(bxc),

but the other side of the equation I have no idea how to start with.

Anyone knows how to do this?

Thanks.
