Norman/Wolczuk’s *An creation to Linear Algebra for technological know-how and Engineering *has been broadly revered for its new angle, which is helping scholars comprehend and practice concept and ideas by way of combining conception with computations and slowly bringing scholars to the tough summary techniques. This procedure comprises an early remedy of vector areas and complicated issues in a less complicated, geometric context. *An advent to Linear Algebra for technological know-how and Engineering *promotes complex pondering and knowing by means of encouraging scholars to make connections among formerly realized and new strategies and demonstrates the significance of every subject via applications.

We need to determine the value of k. To do this, let tdenote the vector from projxy toy. 14. y = t + projx y = t + kx We now employ a very useful and common trick-take the dot product of y with x: . y . x = (t+ kx) . 1 = t . x + (k1) . 1 = o + k(x x) = kll1112 = k since 1 is a unit vector. Thus, projx y = (Y 1)1 · EXAMPLE 1 Find the projection of 11 = [ �] - onto the unit vector i1 = [��1il Solution: We have i1 projv 11 = (it v)v· . /2] . /2J X1 -2 2 If x E JR is an arbitrary non-zero vector, then the unit vector in the direction of 1 is x = 11:11• Hence, we find that the projection of y onto x is , ,"'t , "'t , ( ,"'t proJx Y = proJx Y = v x)x = A .
