3. Determine that the vectors u=[t, 4, 2t+1] and v=[t+2, 1-t, -1] are perpendicular, find the possible values of the contant, t.
Same as previous question,
Except that the dot-product equated to zero results in a quadratic equation.
So solve for possible values of t by solving the quadratic.
t(t+2) + 4(1-t) - (2t+1) = 0
t = 1,3
