The Problem is:
"A horseman left the village A at point and began riding along a straight road whose direction was given by the vector v=7i+4j. The at some point he turned at a right angle; He never changed direction again until he arrived in the village [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed] at the point with the coordinates (8,13). At the point where he made the turn he buried a jar full of silver coins, Unfortunately, he forgot the coordinates of the point. Find the point.
So I drew the graph and labeled the point where he changed direction as with the coordinates . This means the vector is <x-1, y-4> and the vector is <8-x,13-y>.
Next, I worked out the dot product of the two vectors to be (x-1)(8-x)+(y-4)(13-y)=0 It has to be equal to 0 since the angle is a right angle and it is orthogonal. Been working on this problem for about 45 minutes, and have no idea how to solve it. Any help is appreciated.
