1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let a=(1,2,3) b=(-1,2,-1) and c=(0,1,-2). Do these vectors taken in this order, satisfy the right hand rule? Explain.

3. The attempt at a solution

I was told a cross b must equal c otherwise this is not satisfying? I'm VERY confused...can someone help out please and thanks?
