Solution:

(a) From Eq. (3.4),

A = 12 + 22 + (3)2 = 14,

x + y 2 z 3

.

A C = x (2(4) (3)2) + y ((3)0 1(4)) + z (1(2) 2(0)) = x2 + y 4 + z 2.

(e) From Eq. (3.27) and Eq. (3.21),

A (B C) = A (x16 + y 8 + z 4) = 1(16) + 2(8) + (3)4 = 20.

Eq. (3.30) could also have been used in the solution. Also, Eq. (3.29) could be used

in conjunction with the result of part (d).

(f) By repeated application of Eq. (3.27),

A (B C) = A (x16 + y 8 + z 4) = x 32 y 52 z 24.

Eq. (3.33) could also have been used.

(g) From Eq. (3.27),

x B = z4.

(A y ) z = (x3 + z ) z = 1.

Eq. (3.29) and Eq. (3.25) could also have been used in the solution.
