Find two vectors of norm 1 that are orthagonal to the three vectors u = (2, 1, -4, 0), v = (-1, -1, 2, 2), and w = (3, 2, 5, 4).

I've tried setting up a system of equations to solve.

2a + b - 4c = 0

-a - b + 2c + 2d = 0

3a + 2b + 4c + 4d = 0

But when I did that I was left with a free variable. So basically I was wondering if there's another way to do it such as taking the determinate like how you do in 3 space. Except in 4 space.

Eg.

i j k

0 1 0

1 2 5
