Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if an object is 10 units long, then 1/10th of it is 1 unit long if an object is 3 units long, then 1/3rd of it is 1 unit long if an object is 1/5 units long, then 5/1ths of it is 1 unit long if an object is L units long, then 1/Lth of it is 1 unit long

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If, \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \vec{v}= \langle a,b\rangle }\) Then, the unit vector in direction of v is, \(\Large\color{black}{ \displaystyle \langle \frac{a}{\left\vec{v}\right},{~}\frac{b}{\left\vec{v}\right}\rangle }\) (divide each component by the vector's magnitude.
