1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data d1 = 4i - 2j + 4k d2 = -5i + 5j - k Find (d1 + d2) * (d1 x 3d2) 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution My first step was to add d1 and d2, which results in -i + 3j + 3k I then multiplied d2 by 3 to get -15i + 15j - 3k My problem is multiplying d1 and 3d2. I'm a bit confused on how to get the angle. I believe the formula for the magnitude is absin(theta), however the angle is something I don't quite understand. It is also my understanding that I use the "Right hand test" to get the direction of C. I think I can find the magnitudes by squaring i, j, k, then adding them, then taking the square root, so I have a and b. What should I do to determine the angle between d1 and 3d2? I think I've done this before, but lacking a third dimension, so it was just a 2 dimensional triangle. EDIT: I just read the chapter again and got to a final answer of 0 for this problem. Agree? Thanks!
