If any question is not clear, ask for clarification. # Points Score 1 6 2 6 3 6 4 6 5 6 Σ 30 Problem 1: (a) (2 points) For what values of c are h c, 25 i and h c,- 4 i orthogonal? Solution: The vectors are orthogonal if and only if h c, 25 i·h c,- 4 i = c 2- 100 = 0. So for c = ± 10, the vectors are orthogonal. (b) (2 points) For what values of c are h 2 ,c,c 2 i and h- 1 , 4 ,- 32 i parallel? Solution: The vectors are parallel if there is λ ∈ R such that h 2 ,c,c 2 i = λ h- 1 , 4 ,- 32 i ....
