Sir in this question Prove that the vectors 3i+2j-2k,-i+3j+4k and 4i-j-6k can form a triangle. If we find the distance between the vectors and add them then we get zero so it is proved. But I cannot understand why do we find the distance between the vectors. Because these already represent vectors which form a triangle and I don't think these are the vertices. I think I have conceptual misunderstanding. Pls explain Thanks Jai

LET a=3i+2j-2k ,b=-i+3j+4k and c=4i-j-6k,you see on adding b and c we obtain a therfore a,b and c form a triangle according to TRIANGLE LAW OF VECTOR ADDITION.
