Find parametric equations and symmetric equations for the line through P0 and perpendicular to both given vectors. (P0 corresponds to t = 0.)

P0 = (1, 1, 0)

i + j and j + k

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For the symmetric equations, I did this:

(i + j) x (j + k) = k - j + i = <1,-1,1>.

So, the symmetric equations are given by

(x - 1)/1 = (y - 1)/(-1) = (z - 0)/1.

I don't know how to find parametric equation.
