First I would use the idea of MNC being a straight line, they told you that for a reason.
Try that first but I'll leave my working out but resist the temptation to look unless you still absolutely can not do it.
Spoiler:

AB = AO + OB
=-6a + 6b
AC= -12a +12b
MC = MA + AC
MC = 3a - 12a +12b
-9a + 12b
MC= 3(-3a + 4b)
Since MN and NC are part of the same line as it is straight, MC should be a multiple of MN.
MN = MO + ON
MO = -3a and in order for MN to be a multiple of MC, ON has to be 4b so k=4
4. I tried but vectors really isn't my strong point.

Thankyouu soooo much!
I really appreciate it!
