## Homework Statement

Hello i just had a quick question, I am asked to Find the equation of the plane that passes through the line of intersection of the planes 4x - 3y - z - 1 = 0 and 2x + 4y + z - 5 = 0 and parallel to the x - axis.

## The Attempt at a Solution

Now i no if it gave you a point say A(3,4,5) i would use those as my x y and z values to solve for K in the equation 4x-3y-z-1+K(2x+4y+z-5)=0 and therefore finding the equation of the plane, but since it doenst give me a point and just a bit of information saying that it is parralel to the x axis, would i just use the elimation method to find the parametric equations for x y and z and then with that equation solve for the parameter let's say (t) and then therefore find points x,y,z and use those to solve for K?
