Let vector v=<1,-2, 6> and vector w=<30,-11, -2>. Represent vector w in the form of

w=g+h, where g is parallel to v and h is perpendicular to v. Using the dot product

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know where to begin. I think you maybe do v*w first but I don't know.
