What value of c will make these two vectors parallel?

2. Relevant equations

3i + 2j + 9k = w

5i - j + ck = v

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried too find a common factor to multiply by the w vector to get the components of the v vector, but no luck.

3i (5/3) + 2j (5/3) +9k (5/3) = 5i + 10/3 j + 45/3 k ≠ 5i - j +ck
