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

i have 3 vectors a,b,and c. on matlab, i have to find the triple scalar product:

b.(c x a)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i typed it in the script file as:

b'*cross(c,a)

but i got a 3x3 matrix....shouldn't the answer be one fixed value since when i calculate it myself, i get one number instead of a matrix.

did i type it wrong???
