Three of Santa's elves and their best friends are sitting down to a festive feast. Can you find the probability that each elf sits next to their bestie?
Can you prove that a quadrilateral drawn inside a tetrahedron is a parallelogram?
Show that the edges $AD$ and $BC$ of a tetrahedron $ABCD$ are mutually perpendicular if and only if $AB^2 +CD^2 = AC^2+BD^2$. This problem uses the scalar product of two vectors.
