Lets rearrange the forms of the vectors

The number of hamburgers and hotdogs,

The prices of them, `v = 2.25 i + 1.75 j `

a) The dot product of `u*v`

`u*v = 3140X2.25 + 2750X1.75 `

`= 7065 + 4812.5 = $11877.5 `

b) 2.5%...

Lets rearrange the forms of the vectors

The number of hamburgers and hotdogs,

The prices of them, `v = 2.25 i + 1.75 j `

a) The dot product of `u*v`

`u*v = 3140X2.25 + 2750X1.75 `

`= 7065 + 4812.5 = $11877.5 `

b) 2.5% increase in their price can be represented by `$1.025`

`[(100+2.5)/100 = 1.025]`

Second vector v has to be multiplied by the scalar k, i. e., 1.025

`therefore v = 1.025(2.25 i + 1.75 j) `

`= 1.025X2.25i + 1.025X1.75j `

` = 2.30625 i + 1.79375j `

`= 2.31i + 1.79j ` (rounded up to two decimals)

The required vector is `kv(2.31, 1.79)`
