Find parametric equations for the line through the point that is perpendicular to the given line, and intersects this line.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We are given the point (0, 2, 2) and the line

x = 1 + t, y = 2 - t, z = 2t.

We are also given one of the parametric equations, that being x=3s. I am looking for the y and z parametric equations.

I figured that the equation for the first line is = (1, 2, 0) + t(1, -1, 2)

and the equation for the second line is (0,2,2) + s(3,b,c).

Beyond that, I have no idea what to do.
