1. (a) Find a symmetric equation of the line passing through the point (1 , 1 , 1) and parallel to the line whose symmetric equation is x - 2 - 1 = y - 6 5 = z +10. x - 1 - 1 = y - 1 5 = z - 1 . (b) Find the number a so that the vector a, 1 , 2 is orthogonal to the normal vector of the plane given by - x + 3 y + 2 z = 10. We must have - a + 3 + 4 = 0 . So a = 7 . 2

2. Let a and b be 3 dimensional vectors. Show that a × b = - b × a . Let a = a 1 , a 2 , a 3 and b = b 1 , b 2 , b 3 . Then a × b = a 2 b 3 - a 3 b 2 , - ( a 1 b 3 - a 3 b 1 ) , a 1 b 2 - a 2 b 1 - b × a = - b 2 a 3 - b 3 a 2 , - ( b 1 a 3 - b 3 a 1 ) , b 1 a 2 - b 2 a 1 = - b 2 a 3 + b 3 a 2 , b 1 a 3 - b 3 a 1 , - b 1 a 2 + b 2 a 1 = a 2 b 3 - a 3 b 2 , - ( a 1 b 3 - a 3 b 1 ) , a 1 b 2 - a 2 b 1 . Thus a × b = - b × a . 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
