Textbook Problem

Find **a · b**.

**3. a** = ⟨1.5, 0.4⟩, **b** = ⟨−4, 6⟩

To determine

**To find:** A dot product between

Explanation

**Given:**

A minimum of two vectors are required to perform a dot product. The resultant dot product of two vectors is scalar. So, the dot product is also known as a scalar product.

Consider a general expression to find the dot product between two two-dimensional vectors.
