\((1,−2, 3) Θ (1, −\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{3})\)
= \([1*1] + [(-2)*(\frac{-1}{2})] + [3*\frac{1}{3}]\)
= 1+1+1
=3

Answer = (1 x 1) + (-2 * - 1/2) + (3 * 1/3)
= 1 + 1 + 1
= 3

As per the given conditions: \((1,−2, 3) Θ (1, −\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{3})\)

1*1=1 + (-2*-1/2=1) + (3*1/3=1) = 3 Ans E

Given: (a, b, c) Θ (d, e, f) = ad + be + cf
So, (1,−2, 3) Θ (1, −1/2, 1/3) = (1)(1) + (-2)(-1/2) + (3)(1/3)
= 1 + 1 + 1
= 3

Answer: E

Brent

Plugging into the equation, we have:

1(1) + (-2)(-1/2) + 3(1/3) = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3

Answer: E

Given (a, b, c)Θ(d, e, f) = ad + be + cf and

\((1,−2,3)Θ(1,\frac{−1}{2},\frac{1}{3})\) = \((1 * 1) + (-2 * \frac{−1}{2}) + (3 * \frac{1}{3})\)

\((1,−2,3)Θ(1,\frac{−1}{2},\frac{1}{3})\) = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3
