Ans: Let u = (1,2), v = (0,1), w = (1,3), x = (1,2,0) and z = (0,1,1) (i) u + v = (1,2)+(0,1) = (1,3). (ii) 4* w = 4*(1,3) = (4,12). (iii) u + z is not defined as u is an (1x2) vector and z is an (1x3) vector. (iv) 3* z = 3*(0,1,1) = (0,3,3). (v) 2* v = 2*(0,1) = (0,2). (vi) u +2* v = (1,2)+2*(0,1) = (1,4). (vii) u v = (1,2)(0,1) = (1,1). (viii) 3* x + z = 3*(1,2,0)+(0,1,1) = (3,7,1). (ix) 2* x = 2*(1,2,0) = (2,4,0). (x) w + 2* x is not defined as w is an (1x2) vector and x is an (1x3) vector 2 (2) Simon & Blume question 10.10 (page 220) Ans: The vectors for part a,b,d,e, and g are displayed in figure 1. The vectors for part c and f are diplayed in figure 2. Figure 1.

What do you know about the sign of the inner product of the two vectors? a) 180 b) 53 c) 320 d) 90 Ans: Recall that the sign of the inner product of two vectors v 1 and v 2 is given by the sign of the cosinus of the angle between them. a) cos (180) = 1 The sign of the inner product is negative.
