Let W be in the plane in R 3 defined by 2 x 1- x 2 + 4 x 3 = 0, ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 ) ∈ R 3 (a) Find an orthonormal basis for W. (b) Determine the orthonormal comlement W ⊥ of W . Solution: (a) x ∈ W ⇔ x = x 2   1 2 1   + x 3  - 2 1   ⇒ a =   1 2   , b =  - 2 1   is basis for W. Let q 1 = a k a k , b = b- ( q T 1 b ) q 1 , q 2 = b k b k q 1 = 1 √ 5   1 2   , q 2 = 1 √ 105  - 8 4 5   { q 1 , q 2 } is an ON basis for W.Note that the answer is not unique; this just on of theis an ON basis for W....
