    let \[\vec c=x\hat i+y\hat j+z\hat k\]from last time hopefully you remember that the dot product of two perpendicular vectors is zero, so we have that\[\vec a\cdot\vec c=0\]\[\vec b\cdot\vec c=0\]and\[\vec c\cdot(\hat i+2\hat j-7\hat k)=100\]3 equations with 3 unknowns you will get a system that can be solved for x, y, and z
