## Homework Statement

Vectors A and B (both with the lines over it) lie in an xy plane. Vector A has magnitude 8 and angle 130 degrees, Vector B has components Bx=-7.72 and By=-9.2.

a)What is 5(vector A) dot vector B?

b)What is 4(Vector A) cross 3(vector B) in unit vector notation and magnitude angle notation with spherical coordinates?

## Homework Equations

Vector A dot Vector B=abcos(phi)

Other vector equations that can apply to this that I don't know maybe...

## The Attempt at a Solution

I figured that I try to find the vector B by doing the Pythagorean theorem with the two components of B and I get -12 as magnitude. After that I'm not even sure what to do, like for the 5(vector A) do I multiply the angle and magnitude by 5 then do the Vector A dot Vector B=abcos(phi) equation? Same question applies to b and how do I turn the magnitude and the angle into unit vector notation and magnitude angle notation? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Forget A, I solved it
