## The Attempt at a Solution

I know how to do my homework, but I am confused on these formulas.

Is the first formula "

**A**x (

**B**dot

**C**)" the same as the second one? I know the second one is the same as

**A**dot (

**B**x

**C**).

It doesn't make sense to me. Wouldn't the B dot C become a scalar? So how could A cross with that?
