Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dot product should be easy since because of the \((1,0)\) it is just \(7\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So Im just curious in the equation when it says multiply v1 by v2 does that mean you multiply the x and y values of (7,8) and (1,0) together and than add the x and y values together?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^^ yes \[v_1*v_2 = (x_1,y_1) * (x_2,y_2) = x_1 *x_2 + y_1*y_2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the equation would come out to be 7=7costheta. Which would then simplify down to 1=costheta. Then you solve for theta giving you 180 degrees?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1equation is \[\cos \theta = \frac{v_1 *v_2}{v_1 v_2}\] \[\cos \theta = \frac{7}{\sqrt{113}}\] \[\theta \approx 131.2\]
