I'm stuck with this question. I'm clueless as of this point. Given A = 5i + j and B = 2i + kj where k is a scalar find k such that A and B are parallel.

2 vectors are parallel when they have the same direction. This means A = cB (where c is a scalar). Now can you setup the equations to solve for k?
