The position vectors of point A,B and C are 9i-10j , 4i+2j and Ki-2j respectively.Find the value of k if the point A,B and c are collinear. Help me solve this.thank u
Hello, sharmala1
The position vectors of points A, B and C are 9i-10j , 4i+2j and Ki-2j respectively.
Find the value of k if the points A,B and c are collinear.
If are collinear, then: .
We have: .
. . . . . . . . .
Hence: .
From [2]: .
Subtitute into [1]: .
Therefore: .
