So the line can be written as $\displaystyle \begin{align*} L = ( t, 1, 2t + 1 ) = t (1 , 0 , 2 ) + ( 0, 1, 1 ) \end{align*}$.

So the direction vector of the line is $\displaystyle \begin{align*} (1, 0, 2) \end{align*}$. What is the unit vector going in that direction? What is another unit vector that is parallel to this one?
