Answer sheet says (1,-1,-1), teachers calculations says (-1,-1,-1) and my calculations says (-1,-1,-1).
I normally wouldn't ask this, but I'm kinda unsure of my calculations, and in two of the earlier questions the Teacher's calculations was wrong while the answer sheet was correct. Anybody care to quickly calculate it and confirm whether I'm correct?

np. Its only true for lines through the origin, so watch out for that!
