Question 1. Solution: Question 2.
Find the volume of the parallelepiped whose coterminous edges are represented by the vectors .
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = $$\| \vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}]$$ = -264 + 224 + 760 = 720 cubic units Question 3.

Question 1.
If the edges meet a vertex, find the volume of the parallelepiped.
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = The volume cannot be negative
∴ Volume of parallelepiped = 264 cu. units

Question 2.
If and $$\vec{x} \neq \overrightarrow{0}$$ then show that $$\vec{a}, \vec{b}, \vec{c}$$ are coplanar.
Solution:  Question 3.
The volume of a parallelepiped whose edges are represented by $$-12 \vec{i}+\lambda k$$, $$3 \vec{j}-\vec{k}, 2 \vec{i}+\vec{j}-15 \vec{k}$$ is 546. Find the value of λ.
Solution:
Volume of the parallelepiped = = -12 [-45 + 1] – 0 () + λ [0 – 6] = -12 (-44) -6 λ
= 528 – 6λ = 546 (given)
⇒ -6λ = 546 – 528 = 18
∴ λ = $$\frac{18}{-6}$$ = -3

Question 4.
