A triple product 2016-10-03
From sam:
Let a and b are vectors such that
Vector a = (1,1,2)
Vector b = (2,-1,1)
And let vector c be a unit vector such that triple product of a,b,c is minimum . We have to find the value of c.

I thought triple product of a b, c means the volume occupied by parallelepiped. And we have to do volume minimum
