Find the equation of the plane which contains the point (3,2,-3) and the line: (x,y,z) = (7,-4,5) + t (0,-2,2)

2. Relevant equations

Point-Normal equation?

a(x-x_{0})+b(y-y_{0})+c(z-z_{0}) = 0

Not sure if this is related.

3. The attempt at a solution

First off:

The line (xyz) should be (7,-4,5) + t (0,-2,2) which becomes (7, -4-2t, 5 +7t). And then yea...

I'm behind :(. I've been sick for the past 2 weeks and I don't understand my friends' notes. So I'm not asking for any of you to solve this for me, but if someone could point me in the right direction and help me on interpreting the question, then that would be great.

Thanks.
