1. Find a nonzero vector v in span {v2,v3} such that v is orthogonal to v3. Express v as a linear combination of v2 and v3(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2. v1= [3 5 11] v2= [5 9 20] v3= [11 20 49]

3. I know that the dot product of v and v3 must equal zero. And that v must have components between 5 and 11, 9 and 20, and 20 and 49. But I can't find the solution. I tried using pythagoras' theorem for vectors, as well as orthogonal projections but both don't work.
