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

The equation for the line that goes through vector points A and B is

i - 5j - 7k + t(9i + 15j + 12k)

A is defined: i - 5j - 7k

B is defined: 10i + 10j + 5k

Find the position vector of point P such that OP is perpendicular to AB

3. The attempt at a solution

well a.b = 0 to be perpendicular

but how does that help...

Im lost

Any ideas. My test is at 9am tomorrow (GMT). Can someone just explain the whole method for me.

Thanks
