Question from Nazrul, a teacher:

If A and B be two vectors where B = 3 A The What is B/A ?
Please help me.


Vector division is only defined (at least without specific reference to dimension) in the case you mention, when one vector is a scalar multiple of the other.

In such a case, the answer is what you'd expect - the scalar ratio.

Good Hunting!
