1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Find parametric equations and symmetric equations for the line through P0 and perpendicular to both given vectors. (P0 corresponds to t = 0.) P0 = (1, 1, 0) i + j and j + k 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution For the symmetric equations, I did this: (i + j) x (j + k) = k  j + i = <1,1,1>. So, the symmetric equations are given by (x  1)/1 = (y  1)/(1) = (z  0)/1. I don't know how to find parametric equation.

Is it 1+t, 1t and t?
