Problem 666. Vector Linear sum: (p1-m1)V1+(p2-m2)V2+...(pK-mk)Vk

Created by Richard Zapor

Calculate the sum of a Vector times coefficients expressed as two strings.


Normal representation [ a b c ], [ p1 p2 p3 ], [ m1 m2 m3 ]

sum = a(p1-m1)+b(p2-m2)+c*(p3-m3)

sum=9a+4b-3c+2d-6e-8f would be for v=[a b c d e f]

Given v=[1 2 3 4 5 6]



sum= 9+8-9+8-30-48=-62
