## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

ok so first i took the 369N and multiplyed it by the unit vector

(2.4i-3.1j-1.2k)/(2.4^+3.1^2+1.2^2)^.5 and got (216,-279,-108)

ok then i took the cross product of (216,-279,-108) and (-2.4,0,0)when i did this i got (0,-259.2,670)but the i component shouldn't be zero please help
