we have 2 vectors the differ by at most a scalar

does dotting parallel vectors produce a 0? they aint orthogonal that I can recall

I have the vectors AB(2,6) and BC(2K2 , 5K4) And I need to prove that those vectors are parallel. How I will do that?

I mean,I need to find fot wich k those vectors are parallel.

when they differ by only a scalar; by a multiplicative factor. 2 = 2k2 and 6 = 5k4

You could test values of k

4 = 2k; k=2 10 = 5k; k=2 right? so when k=2; that is one possible option for parallel

then we have AB//BC <=> AB = BC

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
when ab = bc; they are parallel; but thats not the only case ...

if you can determine the angle that the vectors span from each other; then you can prove if they are parallel or not as well :) 180 and 0 are parallel vectors
