## The Attempt at a Solution

Hi,

If anyone could help me with this I would be very glad! I have said that M=(aij) and M^T=M^-1
therefore if e1 relates v, where v=(x,y,z) then v=(a11,a21,a31) and all of those values can't be simultaneously zero for M^-1 to exist.. can't seem to get any further!

So, you'll have to determine what $$\{Me_1~\vert~M~\text{orthogonal}\}$$ is. Now, do you know what $$\|Me_1\|$$ is (= the norm of $$Me_1$$)??
