# Dear sir pls help me solve this question.If A,B,C are any 3 vectors then show that - Avector cross (bvector +cvector)=Avector cross bvector+Avector cross C vector.

This is a rule of cross product which all vectors follow
To prove the rule$A+(B\times C)=A\times B+A\times C$
you need to put
$A=a_{1}\hat{i}+a_{2}\hat{j}+a_{3}\hat{k}$
$B=b_{1}\hat{i}+b_{2}\hat{j}+b_{3}\hat{k}$
$C=c_{1}\hat{i}+c_{2}\hat{j}+c_{3}\hat{k}$
and just do the cross product with both the methods i.e. LHS and RHS and hence prove that both result in the same answer
