Given 3 vectors: A = 4k B = 8i + k C = 3i - 4j then C(A • B) =_______?

The answer should be 13 but the way I'm doing it must be wrong because gives me another number. Please show your work so I can see what I'm missing. Thanks :)

    A = 4k = 0i + 0j + 4k

    B = 8i + k = 8i + 0j + k

    C = 3i - 4j = 3i - 4j + 0k

    Now, (A • B) = (0*8 + 0*0 + 4*1) = 4 --- a scalar quantity

    C(A • B) = (3i - 4j + 0k)*4 = (12i - 16j + 0k) = (12i - 16j) ---- a vector quantity

    If you want the magnitude of C(A • B)

    it is given by | C(A • B) | = | (12i - 16j) | = √(12² + 16²) = 20

    How the answer is 13, I am also not able to understand.

    If your question is something else write it as it is without modifying.

    The gist of the communicate accessible (sorry, there are too many pages to furnish each and all the links) is that wands help to concentration the magic resident interior the witch or wizard, yet wandless magic remains achievable, quite for terribly proficient people like Snape and Dumbledore. some examples ...
