Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given information

Vectors are given as-


Step 2. Concept used

The dot product of two vectors u and v can be defined as-


Where u=a1,a2&v=b1,b2

If u and v are two vectors then the component of u along v can be defined as compvu=u·v|v|

Use the formula of components of u along v and the dot product of vectors.

Step 3. Calculation

Component of u along v,
