Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we have 2 vectors the differ by at most a scalar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when they differ by only a scalar; by a multiplicative factor. 2 = 2k2 and 6 = 5k4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24 = 2k; k=2 10 = 5k; k=2 right? so when k=2; that is one possible option for parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then we have AB//BC <=> AB = BC

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if 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
