I have asked it to compute the cross product of (3,4,2) and (4,-3,7), and it keeps returning an incorrect value.

yeah, noticed same. it is able to translate the formula accurately for the cross product of vectors. however the resultant is erroneous. and I am not able to figure its logic as the error distance is different for different vectors

Donâ€™t use GPT completion (or edits) for Math

More often than not, it makes things up because it is simply predicting which number should come next based on â€ślanguageâ€ť processing rules and not using any â€śmathematicalâ€ť knowledge

I agree with @raymonddavey here. GPT-3 models arenâ€™t generally great at math as thatâ€™s not what they were designed to do as a large language model.
