In general, in Rn the standard unit vectors e1 ϭ [1, 0, 0, . . , 0], e2 ϭ [0, 1, 0, . . , 0], . . , en ϭ [0, 0, 0, . . , 1] form a mutually orthogonal set of vectors. The next theorem gives an alternative way of describing parallel vectors in terms of the angle between them. 3 (see Result 4), and the proof of the other case is similar. 9 Let x and y be nonzero vectors in Rn . Then x and y are parallel if and only if x · y ϭ Ϯ x y (that is, cos ϭ Ϯ1, where is the angle between x and y). Example 5 Let x ϭ [8, Ϫ20, 4] and y ϭ [6, Ϫ15, 3].

Therefore, A is true exactly when B is true. 9. Result 4 Let x and y be nonzero vectors in Rn . Then x · y ϭ x is a positive scalar multiple of x. y if and only if y In an “if and only if” proof, it is usually good to begin by stating the two halves of the “if and only if” statement. This gives a clearer picture of what is given and what must be proved in each half. In Result 4, the two halves are 1. Suppose that y ϭ cx for some positive c ∈ R. Prove that x · y ϭ x 2. Suppose that x · y ϭ x y .

(a) Show that every unit vector in R2 is of the form [cos(1 ), cos(2 )], where 1 is the angle the vector makes with the positive x-axis and 2 is the angle the vector makes with the positive y-axis. (b) Show that every unit vector in R3 is of the form [cos(␣1 ), cos(␣2 ), cos(␣3 )], where ␣1 , ␣2 , and ␣3 are the angles the vector makes with the positive x-, y-, and z-axes, respectively.
