I) The index law (AB)' = A rB r does not hold for square matrices. In particular, (AB)2, which means ABAB, need not equal A2B2, which means AABB. (ii) In expanding products such as (A + B)( e + D), care must be taken to preserve the distinction between the matrix products XYand YX. g. one might, without thinking, rewrite (A + Bf as A 2 + 2AB + B2, but in fact this would be wrong. Correct would be (A+B)2 = (A + B)(A +B) = A(A+B)+B(A+B) = A 2 +AB+BA+B 2, which is different from A2+2AB+B2 unless A and B commute.

Y). x = Ixllxl cos 0 = Ix12. x = Ix12. 6 For every vector x, x. x = Ix12. Worked example. ) In a tetrahedron OABC, IOAI = 2,IOBI = 4, IOC! = 3; L CO A is a right angle, while both L BOC and LAO Bare 60° ; and G is the centroid of the tetrahedron. Find IOGI. Solution. We use position vectors relative to 0 as origin, and we write a for r A , b for rB, etc. (a + b+c). (a+b+c) = l6[(a. a)+(b. b)+(c. c)+ 2(a. b)+2(b. c)+ 2(a. c)]. Now a. a = lal 2 = IOAI 2 = 4; and similarly b. b = 16, c. c = 9. Further, a.

Using position vectors, show that B, F, E are collinear, and find the value of BF/FE. 3. Let ABC be a triangle, and let D, E, F be points on the sides BC, CA, AB, respectively, such that BD/DC = CE/EA = AF/FB. Prove that the centroids of the triangles ABC and DEF coincide. 4. Let ABCD be a quadrilateral, and let M 1, M 2, M 3, M 4 be the mid-points of the sides AB, BC, CD, DA, respectively. By using position vectors relative to an arbitrary origin, show that M 1 M 2M 3M4 is a parallelogram. Let 0 be a point not in the plane of ABCD, and let G1 , G2 , G3 , G4 be the centroids of the triangles OCD, ODA, OAB, OBC, respectively.
