Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1parallel vectors, are the ones that have some common factor or a common scalar for example <3,4> and <9,12> are parallel because <9,12> is really just 3<3,4>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm still confused on how to find the dot production, mind giving me a small example?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea I did cover it in the lesson. So let me clarify if u is <1,5> and v was <1,3> and we simply just multiply 1*5 and 1*3. Than just add 5+3 right?
