Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, Do you know how to even start working on this problem?

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So are you working with vectors?

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im just tottally lost on this problem

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so have you done vector proofs before?

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00=(0,0) A=(x1,y1) B=(x2,y2)

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Vector BA=AB=(x1x2, y1y2)

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1352869007184:dw

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so vector BA is equal to AB so when you subtract the points elementwise you get x1x2 and y1y2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1352869116355:dw

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1352869175679:dw

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you do the same for vector ob

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1352869297947:dw

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So OB is OB = OB= <0x2 , 0y2 > ?

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, it would be <OB> = BO = <x2,y2>

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, now you need to subtract <OB> from <OA>. to prove that it equals <AB>

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0look at the attachment, the circled ones.

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How would you prove the?

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, by the subtraction of the vectors, you prove that <BA> = <OA><OB>

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH theyre equal!! Its < x1x2 , y1y2 > !

zordoloom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now to solve part 2, set point c equal to (x3, y3)

zordoloom
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then I would solve for x3,y3 in terms of the other known quantities, x1,y1 and x2,y2 using the given ratio. the rest is just algebra.

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So all what xOA is saying is to ditribute the x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1<BC>/<CA> =x/y so, (CB)/(AC) =x/y now can, you isolate C from here ? try it...

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you want me to isolare c from (CB)/(AC) =x/y right?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u see, how i got, (CB)/(AC) =x/y from given condition, <BC>/<CA> =x/y

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait how would you do that because C is being subtracted

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u mean how to isolate C ? crossmultiply....

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea youd get y(cb) = x(ac) ...

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try to isolate C from that...

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I distribute..first then

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yccb = xa  xc

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, distribute then bring all terms with 'c' together, then factor out c

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its ycyb on the left...

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So C= xaxc / (yb)

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there, u were not able to isolate C, notice, c is there on right side also

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ycyb = xa  xc yc+xc = xa+yb got this step ?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought ititd be yccb = xa  xc since u cross mult tho..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yesyes i did that xD

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what does left side simplify to ?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1knowing that its given that x+y=1

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C= xa+yb / y+x

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait but does C equal to that O:

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay lol Um y+x = .. ?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its given to be =1 see the question

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh cool so it would just be xa+yb

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, c=xa+yb now u know what to do next ?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0PLug it to...

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we know that C=(x3,y3) and O=(0,0) so can you find <OC> = ?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so <OC> =C so we can replace C by <OC> right ?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhyeauhhh! ool!

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in same way, we can replace A by ... ? B by ... ?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A with x1,y1??

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1<OC> =C so we can replace C by <OC> <OA> =A so we can replace A by <OA> <OB> =B so we can replace B by <OB> right ?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so put all those in c=xa+y and see whether u get what needs to be proven..

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do u mean plug in the value sliket his

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OH THATS what you ment I tots get that!

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all steps clear ? any doubts ?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait and how did u kno that OC=c and OA =A and OB = B ?

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1C = (x3,y3) <OC> =CO = (x3,y3)(0,0) = (x30,y30) = (x3,y3) = C same for A and b

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea thanks (: Do you think we can do another in like 10 min?? I I need to sleep asap since I need to wake up early tomorrow (x

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1same type ? ....actually even i need to go in few minutes...

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets me see the question atleast

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK but && Oh and alsoo how did you know that ( C B)/(AC) = x/y

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is given that BC /CA = x/y now BC=CB CA=AC

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember for any vector XY, we can write it as YX

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay why is it flipped again?

butterflyprincess
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh I mean like why isnt it like BC= Bc instead its CB

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its the conventional way of representation, but if you take BC=BC , you will get same exact final answer....

hartnn
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so its no difference, just a way of representation

butterflyprincess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh right k thnx! lemme post the other problem I dont think we have enough tim :C
