Miller Indices Calculation Question

  1. Sep 3, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Give the Miller indices of the plane that is define by the two directions [111] and [2[itex]\overline{1}[/itex]3]?

    2. Relevant equations
    h~1/a
    k~1/b
    l~1/c

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know how to solve for miller indices once you know the the intercepts of the plane. So I found the equation for the plane but it happens to cross through the origin. I know that I am either suppose to move the origin or move the plane to a parallel position. How do i know where this position is? Or can any position i choose be correct?
