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

Show that the following pairs of lines intersect. Determine the coordinates of the point of intersection.

L1: r= (-3,-1) + t(3,4)

L2: r= (6,2) + s(3,-2)

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that eventually the two lines will reach the same point at which they will intersect, but I'm not really sure how to get to that point. The x and y of L1 has to equal the x and y of L2, right? Do I have to use the direction vectors somehow or guess and check?
