I assume a is meant to be:  a = 2i - 6j + k

 

with b = -3j - 2k

 

To add them you just add corresponding coefficients of i, j and k to get:

 

c = 2i - 9j - k

 

To get the unit vector in this direction divide each coefficient by the size of c

 

|c| = sqrt(22 + (-9)2 + (-1)2)  → sqrt(86) 

 

c = (2i - 9j - k)/sqrt(86)
