Question

Find the value of 'p' for which the vectors `3hati+2hatj+9hatk and hati-2phatj+3hatk` are parallel

Solution

We know that for two vectors to be parallel, there direction cosines should have the same ratios.

`∴ 3/1=2/(−2p)=9/3`

`⇒  p=−1/3`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
