Dear pallavi a X(b X c)=1/2b or (a.c)b -(a.b)c =1/2 b or ((a.c) -1/2)b - (a.b)c =0 b is not parallel to c so coefficient of b must be zero a.c -1/2 =0 a.c =1/2 |a| |c| cosT =1/2 where T is angel between a and c 1*1* cosT =1/2 T =60 Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can.

Dear pallavi

a X(b X c)=1/2b

or (a.c)b -(a.b)c =1/2 b

or ((a.c) -1/2)b - (a.b)c =0

b is not parallel to c so coefficient of b must be zero

a.c -1/2 =0

a.c =1/2

|a| |c| cosT =1/2 where T is angel between a and c

1*1* cosT =1/2

T =60

 a×(b×c)=(ac)b(ab)c=21b
(ac1/2)b=(ab)c
But b and c are non parallel so
ac1/2=0,ab=0
angle between a and c is π/3 and the angle between a and b is π/2
