orthgnlizing vectors help please
Posted:

I am trying hard to orthogonalize one vector to another. What I want is to orhognalized vector X with respect to Y without changing Y. I did the following :
X_orth = X  dot(X,Y)*Y/(norm(Y)^2)
However, X_orth*Y'= 2.8306e+03
I added the exact two vectors that I have down here, So please any help!
X= 6.9362 14.0862 9.0762 4.0562 5.9338 10.6438 7.3662 0.1162 4.8338 2.3462 3.1938 0.3162 2.1538 1.8862 1.0738 2.6538 1.3562 0.1362 4.5762 6.3138 0.8938 0.6838 4.7038 0.5138 3.2662 7.2062 2.3662 7.2638 7.5862 2.4862 3.2938 5.8062 4.5662 2.8962 2.6462 5.0962 2.5962 7.9962 7.9562 6.7262 9.3062 11.8562 9.4162 6.6138 2.6362 3.1162 5.8362 2.7038 6.8638 0.8862 2.4438 9.1238 2.9438 6.4738 8.7138 14.4938 13.9238 11.7838 20.8338 3.4338
and another vector w Y=
30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 58 90 92 94 96 98 100 102 104 106 108 110 112 114 116 118 150 152 154 156 158 160 162 164 166 168 170 172 174 176 178 210 212 214 216 218 220 222 224 226 228 230 232 234 236 238
