Equations of Planes

  1. Dec 8, 2003 #1
    I need some help on this question...

    [tex]\rightharpoonup{r}[/tex] = (0,0,5) + s(4,1,0) + t(2,0,2) which intersects the xz-coordinate plane in what line?

    First write the equation for XZ plane let it be u and the given plane be v

    Then the point of intersection will be

    u+kv = 0 where k is any constant which is to be found.

    The above equations are in cartesian coordinate
