Show that there exists a unique polynomial f ∈ Span { p 1 ,p 2 , ··· ,p l } which minimizes the sum n ∑ i =1 ( y i- f ( x i ) ) 2 . 2: (a) Show that for all u,v,w ∈ R 3 we have ( u × v ) × w = ( u . w ) v- ( v . w ) u . (b) Show that for all u 1 ,u 2 , ··· ,u n- 1 ,v 1 ,v 2 , ··· ,v n- 1 ∈ R n we have X ( u 1 ,u 2 , ··· ,u n- 1 ) . X ( v 1 ,v 2 , ··· ,v n- 1 ) = det( A t B ) , where A = ( u 1 ,u 2 , ··· ,u n- 1 ) ∈ M n × ( n- 1) and B = ( v 1 ,v 2 , ··· ,v n- 1 ) ∈ M n × ( n- 1) ....
