Miller Indices Crystallographic Planes Question

  1. Mar 2, 2010 #1
    Suppose i have a plane in a cubic cell that cut across the following intercepts: x=-1, y= -5/12 z=parallel. What is the miller indices of a triangular plane located at the top left corner of this rectangular plane?

    Can anyone explain how to solve this? answer is not important.

    The question does not make sense, or is very poorly worded. And planes do not have corners.

    Furthermore, questions of this kind belong in the Homework & Coursework section of the forum, and help is only provided after the OP shows some effort towards solving the problem.
