Find the equation of the plane that passes through the line of intersection of the planes 4x - 3y - z - 1 = 0 and 2x + 4y + z - 5 = 0 and parallel to the x - axis.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The equation of the plane: 4x+2kx-3y+k4y-z+kz-1-k5=0

do i then assume the plane parallel to the x-axis has points (1,0,0)?

then sub into the equation and solved k=-2

therefore the equation will be =-11y+3z-9?
