I've been given a parametric equation (forgive me if this is the wrong term) of the form(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[x_{1}, x_{2}, x_{3}] = [1, 2, 3] + t[1, 1, 1]

and I don't know how to interpret it.

My best guess:

1x_{1}+ 2x_{2}+ 3x_{3}+ t(x_{1}+ x_{2}+ x_{3})

I know this isn't right; could someone help me out?

EDIT: "t" is simply an arbitrary variable.
