State and prove that dot product is distributive.

Dot product is distributive. Dot product of a given vector with a sum of number of other vectors is equal to the sum of the dot product of given vector with the other vectors separately.

That is,

Proof: Let us consider that three vectors are represented by respectively.

Let, the angle between is and that between .

In the fig. above, the resultant vector is given by . is the resultant of .

Angle made by .

Construction: From P and T draw perpendiculars PM and TN on OL and draw perpendicular PS from P on TN.

Hence, from the above result we can see that the dot product is distributive.
