Hello, I am having trouble. I would appreciate if someone could help me with part b of this problem, I have solved part a.

**Problem:**
Let u = (a,b) and v = (c, d) be nonzero points in the plane

and let

be the radian measure of the angle with vertex 0 formed by 0, u, and v.

**notations: ||u|| is the norm and <u,v> is the scalar/dot product

a. Prove that

(1) LHS =

by definition of dot product

(2) LHS =

by distribution and the property that

(3) LHS =

by factoring

(4) LHS = RHS by sine cosine rule that

b. I am given that

I have to use this to verify that |ad-bc|/2 is the area of the triangle with vertices 0, u, and v and that that as a consequence |ad-bc| is the area of the parallelogram with vertices 0, u, u+v, and v.

I know that the area of a triangle is

, so if the area of the triangle with vertices 0, u, v. Then shouldn't the area be |ac-bd|/2 instead of |ad-bc|/2. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
