Find the vector projection p of x onto y . 3. Verify that x p is orthogonal to p . 4. Compute k x p k 2 , k p k 2 , and k x k 2 , and verify that the Pythagorean law holds. Solution : (a) θ = arccos 12 2 · 6 √ 2 = arccos 1 √ 2 = π 4 . (b) The vector projection in question is p = 1 6 y = ( 4 3 , 1 3 , 1 3 , 0) T . (d) We have k x p k 2 = √ 2, k p k 2 = √ 2, and k x k 2 = 2. It follows that k x p k 2 2 + k p k 2 2 = 2 + 2 = 4 = k x k 2 2 . 5.4.3 Let w = ( 1 4 , 1 2 , 1 4 ) T , and use the weighted inner product h x , y i = n X i =1 x i y i w i . Let x = (1 , 1 , 1) T and y = ( 5 , 1 , 3) T . 1. Show that x and y are orthogonal with respect to this inner product. 2. Compute the values of k x k and k y k with respect to this inner product....
