Two vectors (c and d) are in a xy Cartesian system and they are perpendicular to the "a" vector (ax=3.2, ay=1.6) and they have a module of 5 m. The vector c has a positive x component, and the other, d, has a negative x component.

b) What are the x and y components of the vector "c"?

c) What are the x and y components of the vector "d"?

2. Relevant equations

I found the slope of the c and d vectors. m=-2. With the slope I made this: (c-d)^2+(-2c+2d)^2=25

3. The attempt at a solution

I think I need to find another equation and use substitution with the above equation, but now I can't think of another equation.
