Scalar product

Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! I have a question concerning a math problem I am solving..

we have :

hebergeur d images

the question is to find :

BI . BC (vector) done

AC . ED (vector) done

Show that CA . CD (vector)= -54 without finding the value of CD,maybe replacing CD with other vector? But no matter how much I tried I couldn't arrive to the solution.. :S

I solved the first 2,in details the first one. I still need the last one..

Thank you guys!

One method: $CA.CD = CA.BE = -AC.IL = -54$.
Thanks from blueberry94
