If $\overrightarrow a=2p\hat i+\hat j$ is rotated about an angle of $\theta$ in anti clock wise direction and becomes $(p+1)\hat i+\hat j$

Can you answer this question?

Since the vector $\overrightarrow a $ is rotated, its magnitude is same
$\Rightarrow\:|2p\hat i+\hat j|=|(p+1)\hat i+\hat j|$
$\Rightarrow\:p=1$ or $p=\large\frac{1}{3}$
But if $p=1$ the vectors are same. $\therefore$ $p=\large\frac{1}{3}$
