The teachers  ## Exercise 1

Calculate the head of the vector knowing that its components are (3, −1) and its tail is A = (−2, 4).

## Exercise 2

Given points A = (0, a) and B = (1, 2), calculate the value of a if the magnitude of the vector is one.

## Exercise 3

Normalize the vectors: = (1, ), = (−4, 3) and = (8. −8).

## Exercise 4

Determine the unit vector, , which is in the same direction of the vector .

## Exercise 5

Calculate the coordinates of D so that the quadrilateral formed by the vertices: A = (−1, −2), B = (4, −1), C = (5, 2) and D; is a parallelogram.

## Exercise 6

The vectors = (1, 4) and = (1, 3) form a basis. Express this in basis the vector = (−1. −1).

## Exercise 7

Find the value of k so that the angle that forms between = (3, k) and = (2, −1) is:

1 90°

2

3 45°

## Exercise 8

Calculate the value of a so that the vectors = 3 + 4 and = a − 2 form an angle of 45°.

## Exercise 9

If { , } is an orthonormal basis, calculate:

1 · 2 · 3 · 4 · ## Solution of exercise 1

Calculate the head of the vector knowing that its components are (3, −1) and its tail is A = (−2, 4).

3 = xB − (−2)xB = 1

−1 = yB − 4yB = 3

B(1, 3)

## Solution of exercise 2

Given points A = (0, a) and B = (1, 2), calculate the value of a if the magnitude of the vector is one.  ## Solution of exercise 3

Normalize the vectors: = (1, ), = (−4, 3) and = (8. −8).   ## Solution of exercise 4

Determine the unit vector, , which is in the same direction of the vector .  ## Solution of exercise 5

Calculate the coordinates of D so that the quadrilateral formed by the vertices: A = (−1, −2), B = (4, −1), C = (5, 2) and D; is a parallelogram.  ## Solution of exercise 6

The vectors = (1, 4) and = (1, 3) form a basis. Express in this basis the vector = (−1. −1).

(−1. −1) = a (1, 4) + b (1, 3)

−1 = a +b a = −1 −b a= 2

−1 = 4a +3b −1 = 4( −1 −b) +3b b = −3 = 2 − 3 ## Solution of exercise 7
