    \[\mathbf{v}\cdot\mathbf{w}=\langle 1,-1\rangle\cdot\langle 1,1\rangle\]\[=1(1)+-1(1)=0\]

    you can also use is the fact that for two vectors with magnitudes \(a\) and \(b\), with angle \(\theta\) between the two vectors, the dot product is\[\mathbf{a}\cdot\mathbf{b}=ab\cos{\theta}\]

    so \(0=\cos{\theta}\)
