That's all wrong. The dot product is zero for perpendicular vectors.inha said:

The cross product is i x j = k.

Yeah, the cross product is zero for parallel vectors. So (1,1,1) x (2,2,2)= (1,1,1) x (3,3,3) = (0,0,0) is a solution.Antiphon said:That's all wrong. The dot product is zero for perpendicular vectors.

Oh hell. I got my products mixed. Scratch that advice and sorry if I caused any problems.

(a,b,b+ka) satisfies the prop(k is a scalar not equal to zero)
