(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

C= B|A| + A|B|

D= A|B|-B|A|

C and D are orthogonal

Find a third vector perpendicular to both C and D

2. Relevant equations

[AxB] = |A||B|sin(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that to find the answer I need to find the cross product of C and D. I have done similar problems, but the unit components (i,j,k) have always been given. I can't figure out a way to do this without having those.

Thanks for any help, even a hint!
