Nope... how have you worked out your partial derivatives? Post your working and I'll show you where you've gone wrong.

another quick question:

Show that the following points form a right angled triangle :

A( 1 , 2 , 3 ) , B( 3 , 8 , 13 ) and C( –2 , 8 , 14 ) .

Also, find the area of the triangle, and the equation of the plane on which the triangle sits .

cos(theta) between two of the letters has to be 1 i know but it doesnt seem to work...HELP!

There's your error. The letters are the position vectors of the three vertices of the triangle, not the sides. The sides are , and , and it's two of these that have to be perpendicular for it to be a right-angled triangle.

ahhhhh yeah i get it now lol...i was using them as the length of the sides do you have your own youtube channel...it would be verry useful
