##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

The idea is based on a concept of scaling and similarity.

Any vector that "has the same direction" as

All we need now is to find a scaling factor that leads to a vector with the length

The length of a vector with coordinates

So, if we want the length to be equal to

The coordinates of a vector with the same direction as
