You press 2nd alpha to enter the letters I n d e x and then press alpha to enter the eight and the closed parenthesis you Press ENTER and you’re into my main menu. You scroll to where your choice is, right now you want to know how to do vector dot product so we’re going to scroll to dot product in my menu. Press ENTER now we need to add the vectors or the variables of the two vectors and so follow along as I do that you have to press alpha first alpha eight for the x alpha minus three alpha minus nine alpha seven alpha five alpha minus two. I show you what you’ve entered you can change it if you want I say it’s ok. And you can do many things with these two vectors but today we want to do vector dot product so Im going to scroll up to A B times dot product heres the way you notate the vector with a dot in between to show that your doing a dot product heres your vectors 8 times 7 minus 3 times 5 minus 9 times minus 2 and that calculates to 56 plus minus 15 plus 189 which is 59, pretty neat huh everyStepCalculus.com. Got to my site, enjoy my programs, and pass calculus.
