=v2u2 + v3u3

=<v,u>

2.<cu,v> = cu1v2+cu2v2

= c(u2v2+u3v3)

= c<u,v>

3.<u,v+w>=u2(v2+w2)+u3(v3,w3)

= u2v2+u2w2+u3v3+u3w3

= <u,v>+<u,w>

4.a) <u,u>=u22 + u32

greater than or equal to zero as u2^2 greater than or equal to zero and u3^2 is greater than or equal to zero

b) <u,u>=0 then u2=0 and u3=0.

Somehow ive wrongly proved all the axioms :S im assuming this does not define an inner product as it does not include u1 and v1 in the inner product, therefore cannot be an inner product in R^3. I would greatly appreciate anyone looking over my work to help me! Thanks
