## Answers

**A) 2**

Explanation:

|u| = 2|v| =|2v|. So u and 2v are vectors of the same length in directions of u and v, so their sum u+2v bisects the angle.

w = u + αv = u + 2 v

That is α = 2

Because, If we have two vectors with equal magnitude in the direction of given vectors, then their sum will bisect the angle between them.
