What happens when an infinitely tall vertical rectangular prism consisting of all (x,y,z) with x between a and b and y between c and d is cut by a non-vertical plane z = px + qy + k? What are the possible shapes of the slice?

2. Relevant equations

I don't know...no idea really

3. The attempt at a solution

I think it would be a parallelogram, but I have no idea how to prove this.
