Without finding the angle between two vectors, we can determine if they are parellel if they are scalar multiples of each other.
That is, if u = kv or v = ku for nonzero value of k since we are simply scaling. The two vectors are ort hogonal if thair dot product is 0:uv=0.
Check if they are parallel:
Since
v=12u104,32=12(5,3)
then u and v are parallel.
