Find the vector equation for the line of intersection of the planes 5x−4y+z=3 and 5x+z=1

2. Relevant equations

N/A

3. The attempt at a solution

I know this much.

r=<__,__,0>+t<-4,__,__>

Could someone explain to me what I'm actually doing? I understand how the two intersecting planes make a line, but I dont understand how to actually find it. Id really appreciate it if someone could give me the "super simple, average joe" definition I would really appreciate it.

Conceptually I get it, but mathematically I dont know what I need to do.
