Answer :  2 i j + k  = p 2 2 + ( 1) 2 + 1 2 = 6 . Hence the unit vector is 1 6 (2 i j + k ) = 2 6 i 1 6 j + 1 6 k . (b) Give a parametric equation of the line in R 3 going though the point (1 , 4 , 5) and (2 , 4 , 1). Answer : As a direction vector, we can choose (2 , 4 , 1) (1 , 4 , 5) = (1 , , 6) . Hence a parametric equation is ( x, y, z ) = (1 , 4 , 5) + t (1 , , 6) ....
