"Verify that if a and b are vectors of the same length then
a + b and a - b
are mutually perpendicular."
How are you able to figure out how to verify that the vectors are the same length/mutually perpendicular? I know that you use the dot product, so (B]a[/B] + b) · (a - b) to verify it although, I just do not understand why. How does the dot product of both vectors mean that they are of the same length/mutually perpendicular?
