Is the following statement true? My intuition tells me it is true, but I have been trying to prove it, without much success:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] (proj_{v}u ) \cdot (u - proj_{v}u) = 0 [/tex]

It makes complete since if you draw it out in R2, but I am trying to prove it in Rn.

Any ideas?
