    n = 120i + 310j + 60k

    p = 29i + 18j + 21 k

    Total cost = $10,320

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let n and p represent the vectors for number of products and prices respectively.

    Also, the coordinates i, j and k represent cashews, walnut and Brazil nut respectively.

    The vector form of the total number of bags ordered and the cost are;

    n = 120i + 310j + 60k

    p = 29i + 18j + 21 k

    We can obtain the total cost by obtaining the dot product of the two vectors.

    Total cost = n. p = (120i + 310j + 60k). (29i + 18j + 21 k)

    C = 120*29 + 310*18 + 60*21

    C = $10,320
