Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the following question,

Simplify

(au + bv) x (cu + dv) where a,b,c,d are scalars and u,v are vectors.

I know that we can take ab ab and cd outside to make the expression

ab(u +v) x cd(u + v) but I am unsure on where to go from here.

Thanks in advance
