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
