First of all find the sum of the given two vectors \(\vec{a}=2i +4j-5k,\:and\:\vec{b}=i +2j+3k\)

That is \(\vec{ a}+\vec{b}=3i+6j-2k\)

\(|\vec{a}+\vec{b}|=\sqrt{3^2+6^2+(-2)^2}=\sqrt{9+36+4}=\sqrt{49}=7\)

Unit vector along $\vec{a}+\vec{b}=\Large \frac{\vec{a}+\vec{b}}{|\vec{a}+\vec{b}|}$$=\large\frac{1}{7}$$(3i+6j-2k)$
