Calculate the dot product of the three pairs of vectors. If the dot product is zero, the vectors are orthogonal.

For example,

(i)<18,-3>.<-1,-6>=-18+18=0

So pair (i) is orthogonal.

Post your answer for checking if you wish.

v•w = 0 if v┴w

18i−3j • −i−6j = 0

15i−2j • −4i+30j = -120

3i−j • i+3j = 0

Can you take it from here?
