I have a theorem in my book that says two vectors are orthogonal (perpendicular) if and only if their dot product is equal to zero. But I seem to be having difficulty turning them into vectors. Also, it seems that there should be 3 different sets of vectors that I could choose, how do I determine which are the best choice without graphing it out? ...and is there a method where that doesn't matter?
