That is, I think, the missing piece.
"Given that v and w are vectors such that v x w = 2i - j + 3k, find:
(v + 3w) x (2w - v)"
-> 2(v x w) -3(w x v)
Having a look at the solution, the equation needs to be further simplified: as 5(v x w) and what I do not understand is how you would be able to get to that equation. I understand the working out from after having simplified the equation - it is just this step of the answer that I am having difficulty with.
