Okay so i need a little help.

Heres the problem.

The question asks...

Find a vector that has the same direction as <-2,4,2> but has length 6. :surprised

So i Did the |v|= Sqrt( A1^2+A2^2+A3^2)= sqrt(24) which is how you begin to find the unit vector with the same direction. I get stumped on how to find it with length 6. The new vector with the same direction would be... <-2/Sqrt(24), 4/Sqrt(24), 2/Sqrt(24)... but.. what about the length of 6..?

Can anybody help me? What do i do with this length of 6? :yuck:

... any help would be awesome!!!!!
