Use the scalar triple product to find the volume of the parallelopiped with vertices at
(−2,0,0),(2,0,0),(0,2,0),(4,2,0),(−1,1,4),(3,1,4), (1,3,4),(5,3,4) ?

1. Draw a rough sketch of the parallelepiped.
2. Choose one vertex (for instance (2, 0, 0)) and calculate the vectors representing the edges of the parallelepiped starting from (2, 0, 0).
No, those are points not vectors. Use the vectors from (2, 0, 0) to three "adjacent" points. ("Adjacent" meaning there is an edge of the parallelpiped between the point and (2, 0,0).)
