Unformatted text preview: MATH 231 Group Work Quiz Related 1. Determine whether the points lie on a straight line: (a) (1 , 2 , 3), (4 , 5 , 6), and (7 , 8 , 9). (b) (- 1 ,- 5 , 1), (1 , 2 , 5), and (3 , 9 , 9). Answer: (a) Yes. (b) Yes. 2. Find the unit vector in the direction of the given vector: (a) h 2 , , i (b) 4 i + 2 j- 3 k (c) h 1 , 3 , 4 i (d) h 2 ,- 3 , 7 i Answer: (a) h 1 , , i , (b) 1 29 h 4 , 2 ,- 3 i (c) 1 26 h 1 , 3 , 4 i (d) 1 62 h 2 ,- 3 , 7 i 3. Show that the equation represents a sphere. Compute the center and radius. 4 x 2 + 4 y 2 + 4 z 2 = 1- 16 y + 8 x Answer: Dividing by 4, we find that x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1 4- 4 y + 2 x . Thus, 1 4 = x 2- 2 x + y 2 + 4 y + z 2 = ( x- 1) 2 + ( y + 2) 2 + z 2- 5 . This gives us that ( x- 1) 2 + ( y + 2) 2 + z 2 = 21 4 , so the center is (1 ,- 2 , 0) and the radius is 21 2 . 4. Name all equal vectors in the figure shown. A B C D E Answer: There are an awful lot of these. Just for a sample, here are some:--- AEB =-- AB =---- ADEB 1---...
