2. (~5,4, —3)
3. (5,0, W3) 4. (5, 4, 0) correct
5. (5, —4, —3) s. (5, 4, 3) Explanation: The soy—plane consists . of all points
P(:c, y, 2:) whose z—coordinate is given by
z m 0, and the projection of P(zt, y, 2) onto
the my—plane has coordinates (as, y, 0). Con—

correct Explanation: Because the box lies in the ﬁrst octant, each
' point will have only nonnegative coordinates.
So the inequalities describing the box are ng< 77 U<y<9a 0<z<l keywords: rectangular solid, inequalities, ﬁrst

the line segment joining A and B (since it
must contain the perpendicular biseotor of

4. a m “2
5. a = 2
Explanation: Since addition and scalar muitiplication of
vectors is carried out componentwise, we see
that u = («5,1)= a,(—1,1)+b(3,—1)
= (a+~3l),owb>.
Thus
ma+35 = W5, amb =1. Consequently, after solving these for a we see

The sum of vectors a W ali+o2j+a3k, b w 01i+023+b3k
is defined componentwise: a—l—b = (a;+b1)i+(o2 +bg)j+(a3+b3)k; similarly, multiplication by a scalar A also is
