    3 Vectors Forming a Right Handed Triad

    "Prove that the three orthonormal vectors a,b, and c taken in that order form a right-handed triad if and only if the scalar triple product a.b x c = 1"

    All I know is that the 3-tuple (a,b,c) is a right-handed triad if c = a x b , and a left-handed triad if c =-a x b


    Also I'm new to these forums, so how do I (if possible) post variables as greek letters and equations that use sigma notation and similar math symbols?
