# Vectors C4 watch

1. I have a maths question, can't do it for some reason:Given a vector a = 3i + 4j - k, derive the unit vector parallel to a.
2. you need to divide a by |a|
3. divide all values of a by |a| which is √26 ? So: 3/√26, 4/√26, -1/√26, is that correct?

Yes, those are the correct values, though but it into the same format as the question.
