    Find the vectors T, N, and B at the given point.

    r(t)=<e^t , e^t sint , e^t cost> , (1,0,1)

    I'm having problems with this one because it requires lots of calc. I and II and i just can't remember how to do some of this.

    I can take the first derivative and the second but doing the cross product is giving me trouble.
