Evaluating the 2 × 2 determinants, we thus see that f ( x ) = 5 + 8 x + 4 x 2 . keywords: matrix, determinant, quadratic Function, expansion by minors 002 10.0 points ±ind the value oF the determinant D = v v v v v v v 3 2 1 2 1 3 x y z v v v v v v v . 1. D = 7 x + 11 y z 2. D = 7 x 11 y + z 3. D = 7 x + 11 y z correct 4. D = 7 x 11 y z 5. D = 7 x + 11 y + z 6. D = 7 x 11 y + z Explanation: ±or any 3 × 3 determinant v v v v v v v A B C a 1 b 1 c 1 a 2 b 2 c 2 v v v v v v v = A v v v v v b 1 c 1 b 2 c 2 v v v v v B v v v v v a 1 c 1 a 2 c 2 v v v v v + C v v v v v a 1 b 1 a 2 b 2 v v v v v . Thus D = v v v v v v v 3 2 1 2 1 3 x y z v v v v v v v = 3 v v v v v 1 3 y z v v v v v + 2 v v v v v 2 3 x z v v v v v v v v v v 2 1 x y v v v v v = 3 (1 z + 3 y ) + 2 ( 2 z + 3 x ) ( 2 yx ) . Consequently, D = 7 x + 11 y z . keywords: determinant 003 10.0 points ±ind the cross product oF the vectors a = i 2 j 3 k , b = 3 i 2 j + 3 k . 1. a × b = 11 i + 6 j 9 k

geyer (dag2798) – HW09 – rusin – (55735) 2 2. a × b = 11 i + 6 j 8 k 3. a × b = 12 i + 6 j 8 k correct 4. a × b = 12 i + 4 j 8 k 5. a × b = 12 i + 3 j 9 k 6. a × b = 11 i + 4 j 9 k Explanation: One way of computing the cross product ( i 2 j 3 k ) × ( 3 i 2 j + 3 k ) is to use the fact that i × j = k , j × k = i , k × i = j , while i × i = 0 , j × j = 0 , k × k = 0 . For then a × b = 12 i + 6 j 8 k . Alternatively, we can use the de±nition a × b = v v v v v v i j k 1 2 3 3 2 3 v v v v v v = v v v v 2 3 2 3 v v v v i v v v v 1 3 3 3 v v v v j + v v v v 1 2 3 2 v v v v k to determine a × b . 004 10.0 points Which of the following statements are true for all vectors a , b n = 0 ? A. if a × b = 0, then a b b , B. | a · b | 2 − | a × b | 2 = | a | 2 | b | 2 , C. a × b + b × a = 0. 1. A only 2. C only 3. A and C only correct 4. all of them 5. B only 6. A and B only 7. none of them 8. B and C only Explanation: A. TRUE: if θ, 0 θ π , is the angle between a , and b , then | a × b | = | a || b | sin θ , so if b a b n = 0 and b b b n = 0, then | a × b | = 0 = sin θ = 0 . Thus θ = 0 , π . In this case, a is parallel to b .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
