(a) Find a formula for the volume of a tetrahedron in terms of the coordinates of its vertices P, Q, R, and S. (b) Find the volume of the tetrahedron whose vertices are P 1, 1, 1 , Q 1, 2, 3 , R 1, 1, 2 , and S 3, 1, 2 . 3. Suppose the tetrahedron in the figure has a trirectangular vertex S. (This means that the three angles at S are all right angles.) Let A, B, and C be the areas of the three faces that meet at S, and let D be the area of the opposite face PQR.
