The vector <4  -7>is orthogonal to the vector <3  k>. The vector <2  m> is orthogonal to the vector <3  k>. Find m.

The dot product of orthogonal vectors   = 0

 

So

 

4*3 + -7*k  = 0

12 - 7k  = 0

12 = 7k

k  = 12/7

 

And

 

2*3 +  (12/7)* m  = 0

6 + (12/7)m  = 0

 

(12/7)m  = - 6

m = -6(7/12)   =  - 7/2
