1.
your 2 vectors are [3,2,6] and [4,3,1]
using the dot product
12  6  6 = √(9+4+36) √(16+9+1) cosØ, where Ø is the angle between them
0 = .... , no point to go further.
I can see cosØ = 0
Ø = 90° or π/2 radians
2.
6 + 3  2 = √(4+9+1) √(9+1+4) cosØ
7 = √14√14cosØ
7 = 14cosØ
cosØ = 1/2
Ø = 60° or π/3
