Question: Prove: If a , b, c, and d lie in the same plane when positioned with a common initial point then (a*b) * (c *d) =0. is a vector normal to the plane containg and . Similarly is a vector normal to the plane containg and . But these two planes are the same plane so and are parallel (or anti-parallel) and hence: RonL
