1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I can't figure out how to start to find the components of these vectors!! (see attached) It seems like there's not enough info :( What am I missing?!

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Hello!
If it helps, I believe the question intends that whenever there's a vector, or demarcation of length(where it says the length of a certain segment), it means that that's a midpoint, i.e the median of that particular line.
As for the unit vectors, it's always efficient to pick your most convenient metric, around O, on the axes perpendicular to it, and mark it as $$\hat{x}, \hat{y}, \hat{z}$$
