(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The plane P1 contains the points A,B,C, which have position vectors a=(0,0,0), b=(1,1,8) and c=(0,1,5) respectively. Plane P2 passes through A and is orthogonal to the line BC, whilst plane P3 passes through B an is orthogonal to the line AC. Find the coordinates of r, the point of intersection of the three planes

3. The attempt at a solution

I have found the equation of plane P1 using the vector product of vectors AB and AC, but I can't find the equation of the line perpendicular to BC which passes through A to find plane P2.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
