Find the values of a and b such that u = (1,a,2b) and v = (-3,1,4) are parallel. I tried equating the terms but I'm not getting anywhere. a+8b-3=0. Can you help?
I also have a problem solving this question:

Please always start a new thread, do not add to an existing one.
You want to find values such that $\displaystyle \frac {1}{-3} = \frac {a}{1} = \frac {2b}{4}$.
