Not sure if this belongs here but i'll give it a shot

Hi, i'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but im having trouble with this question

Find two vectors v?1 and v?2 whose sum is ?0,2,5?, where v?1 is parallel to ?1,0,?4? while v?2 is perpendicular to ?1,0,?4?

I was able to find that y1=0 and y2=2 but am having trouble finding out what x1, x2, z1, z2 are

Any help would be great
Thanks
