Determine the Cartesian equation of the plane that is perpendicular to the yz-plane and has y-intercept 4 and z-intercept -2.

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure that the normal to the plane I want to find would be (0,1,1). A y-intercept would go through (0,y,0) and a z-intercept would go through or be (0,0,z). How do I make an equation with a y and z- intercept at 4 and -2 respectively?
