6. Three non-coplanar vectors u, v, w are given. Referred to these vectors as base vectors, the vectors, e, f, g, h are given by: 1 1 2 —1 e= (0) , f= (1) , g = (3), h = 4 ( 1) . 0 1 3 0 Express e, f, g, h as column vectors taking v +w, w +u, u + v as base vectors. 7. Write down the coordinates of the mid-points of the lines joining the following pairs of points: (i) (2, 4), (4, 6); (ii) (-2, 4), (4, 2); (iii) (— 1, — 3), (2, —4); (iv) (3, 1, —5), (2, —4, 0); (v) (a + b, a, a — b), (a —b, —a, — a — b).
