Well, you're told how M relates to JK, but you don't know what JK is. So how can you get from J to K via the "long route" and what pieces of information do you need to put together to get this?

I do not have the mark scheme unfortunately but I do have a similar answer. I have JM = -3.5a + 5b.
Yep I’m sure that’s right

Anyway, as davros mentioned take the long route as JM is not easy to determine right away. Be sure to use the information given carefully and also the fact that a vector AB (for example) = -BA.
