Hi all,

How do you find out if this Parametric equation

x = -2t + 3 ; y = -t - 1 ; z = -3t + 2

Is perpendicular to this parametric equation

x = -2 + 6t ; y = 3 - 6t ; z = -3 - 2t

Thanks

Hi all,

Is it possible to add vectors with different sizes for example.

U=(3,0,-2,1,4) and V = (1,-3,2,5)

U + V = (4 , -3 , 0 , 6 , 4 )
