Consider the line through points A = (1, 1, 2) and B = (2, 3, 4), and let P be the foot of the perpendicular from Q = (3, -7, -1) to this line, as in the picture below:

Then $$\overrightarrow{AP}$$  is the projection of $$\overrightarrow{AQ}$$ onto a vector $$\mathbf{u} = \begin{pmatrix} u_1 \\ u_2 \\ u_3 \end{pmatrix}$$
such that $$u_1 + u_2 + u_3 = 5.$$ What is u?
