Step 1

A] Proof: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(с -а,с, - а,) and (b - a,b, - а,). C1-a1 The vectors are b-a where A. B Consider that the vectors are dependent, then A b-a c2-a2 are constants The system of equations becomes 4(с, - а)+ в(b, -а) -о 4(с, - а,) +B(b, -а,) -0 The system is dependent as the vectors are linearly dependent, thus the determinant is zero fullscreen
