1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Griffiths problem 6.16

Solve the following commutators (he lists a bunch but i can't get even the first one)

(a) [(L.S) , L]

(b) [(L.S) , S]

(c) [(L.S) , L^2]

there's a few more, but i think if i get the idea then i can do the rest. I know it isn't supposed to be hard but for some reason i can't get it.

Thank you any help you can give.
