Work Step by Step

${\bf u}\times{\bf v}=\left|\begin{array}{lll} {\bf i} & {\bf j} & {\bf k}\\ u_{1} & u_{2} & u_{3}\\ v_{1} & v_{2} & v_{3} \end{array}\right|$ --- ${\bf i}\times{\bf j}={\bf u}\times{\bf v}=\left|\begin{array}{lll} {\bf i} & {\bf j} & {\bf k}\\ 1 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & 1 & 0 \end{array}\right|=0-0+(1-0){\bf k}$ $={\bf k}$
