1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find parametric equations for the tangent line to the curve of intersection of the cone z=√(x2 + 4y2) and the plane 3z = x + 2y + 8 at the point (3,2,5) 2. The attempt at a solution I was trying to make the two Zs equal to each other, and solve for x or y, but I couldn't get any of them separate. I tried squaring both of them so they would both have things like X2. It didn't work out.
