between a, and b, then 5. B only
6. C only correct a × b = ab sin θ ,
so if a = 0 and b = 0, then 7. A only
8. A and B only a × b = 0 =⇒ sin θ = 0 . Explanation: Thus θ = 0, π . In this case, a is parallel to b. A. FALSE: if θ, 0 ≤ θ ≤ π , is the angle
between a, and b, then keywords: a · b = ab cos θ ,
while
a × b = ab sin θ . 009 10.0 points Find the area of the triangle having vertices

The length of a × b is given by 5. area = 2
Explanation:
To use vectors we shall identify a line segment with the corresponding directed line segment.
