The following table contains statistics about identities which exist between socalled standard terms of the classical vector analysis in R^{3}. Standard terms formed from k vectors and 1 test vector x are for instance
k + 1 = 4  k + 1 = 5  
<a,b><c,x>
<a,c><b,x> <a,x><b,c> 

Examples of identities between standard terms are for instance
<a,d> b × c + <b,d> c × a + <c,d> a × b = <a,b,c> d (an identity which does not contain a test vector x)
and

=  0 . 
More details can be found on the page of PERMS notebooks where I present the text of a talk (given at SLC46, Lyon, 2001) and the Mathematica notebooks of the calculation of the following table.
