Thus | λ ( a − 2 b ) | = r λ 2 (( − 3) 2 + ( − 1) 2 ) = | λ | r ( − 3) 2 + ( − 1) 2 = | λ | √ 10 . Consequently, λ ( a − 2 b ) will be a unit vector iF and only iF λ = ± 1 √ 10 . keywords: vector sum, length, linear combi-nation, unit vector, Version 055 – DGQ05 – gilbert – (55485) 2 003 10.0 points Find the vector v having a representation by the directed line segment −−→ AB with respect to points A ( − 4 , − 1) and B ( − 3 , 3). 1. v = a− 7 , 2 A 2. v = a− 1 , 4 A 3. v = a 7 , 2 A 4. v = a 1 , − 4 A 5. v = a 1 , 4 A correct 6. v = a− 7 , − 2 A Explanation: Since −−→ AB = a− 3 + 4 , 3 + 1 A , we see that v = a 1 , 4 A ....
