Answer:

#sqrt(113)#

Explanation:

When norm is thought of as a length or distance, we can define the norm of a vector #vec(u) = (u_1,u_2,...,u_n)# in n-dimensional space #RR^n# as

#||vec(u)|| -= sqrt(u_1^2+u_2^2+...+u_n^2)#

In this case, the norm will be given by

#||vec(u)|| = sqrt(4^2+(-4)^2+9^2) = sqrt(113)#
