let vector a, vector b and vector c be three unite vectors such that


Let $\vec{a}, \vec{b}$ and $\vec{c}$ be three unit vectors such that $|\vec{a}-\vec{b}|^{2}+|\vec{a}-\vec{c}|^{2}=8$

Then $|\vec{a}+2 \vec{b}|^{2}+|\vec{a}+2 \vec{c}|^{2}$ is equal to





$\Rightarrow|\vec{a}|^{2}+|\vec{b}|^{2}-2 \vec{a} \cdot \vec{b}+|\vec{a}|^{2}+|\vec{c}|^{2}-2 \vec{a} \cdot \vec{c}=8$

$\Rightarrow \quad 4-2(\vec{a} \cdot \vec{b}+\vec{a} \cdot \vec{c})=8$

$\Rightarrow \vec{a} \cdot \vec{b}+\vec{a} \cdot \vec{c}=-2$

$|\overrightarrow{\mathrm{a}}+2 \overrightarrow{\mathrm{b}}|^{2}+|\overrightarrow{\mathrm{a}}+2 \overrightarrow{\mathrm{c}}|^{2}$

$=\left|a^{2}\right|+4|\vec{b}|^{2}+4 \vec{a} \cdot \vec{b}+|\vec{a}|^{2}+4|\vec{c}|^{2}+4 \vec{a} \cdot \vec{c}$

$=10+4(\vec{a} \cdot \vec{b}+\vec{a} \cdot \vec{c})$
