Find the equation of the plane that passes throughthe point (-1,2,1) and contains the line of intersection of the planes x+y-z=2, and 2x-y+3=1

2. Relevant equations

[tex]a(x-x_{o})+b(y-y_{o})+c(z-z_{o})=0[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

My reasoning is that we can take the normal vectors of the given planes, take the cross product, which will be orthoganol to the plane we want.

We then just plug the obtained normal vector and the point into the equation. Right?
