Are the two ? symbols the same numerical i component, or are they different? You have one equation in each case and can only have one unknown.

If the ? components are x, the scalar product is

A*B = x^2 + 8 + 12 = x^2 + 20

and it also equals

|A||B|cos15 = sqrt(x^2+16+16)*sqrt(x^2+4+9)cos15

In principle, you could now solve for x^2, but it would be messy.

x^2 + 20 = sqrt[(x^2+32)(x^2+13)]*0.9659
