Can someone explain to me how to do this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Determine whether the line and plane are perpendicular or parallel or neither

x = -1+2t

y = 4+t

z = 1-t

4x+2y-2z-7=0

My attempt:

2/4 = 1/2 = -1/-2

Since the ratios are the same, does it mean it is parallel?

Also when is it perpendicular?
