    Consider the following three vectors in R^3:
    x_1=(1, -1, 0, 2)
    x_2=( 1,1,1,0)
    x_3= (-1,-1,2,0)

    a) Verify that {x_1, x_2, x_3} are orthogonal with the standard inner product in R^4
    b) Find a nonzero vector x_4 such that {x_1, x_2, x_3, x_4} is a set of mutually orthogonal vectors.
    c) Convert the resulting set into an orthonormal basis for R^4
