Unit vector help please.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    use unit vectors to express the vector C where C=3.00A-4.00B
    the answer is apparently C=12.0i + 14.9j

    2. Relevant equations

    cross product

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i have no idea where to even start how is it possible to find the i orj because i dont even know the components of A or B

    To find the unit vector you're going to have to divide each component of the vector by the magnitude of the vector.
