Hi,

So my question is:

Find the equation of the plane which contains the point (0,1,3) and the line:

(x,y,z) = (-1,0,-2) + t(1,-3,-1)

It has to be in the form Ax+By+Cx=D. D has to be positive

2. Relevant equations

see above

3. The attempt at a solution

the only thing I know right now is that the plane has the direction vector of (1,-3,-1) because this plane is parallel to the line. And that could possibly be vital to finding the solution. But I have absolutely no idea where to go from there. So I hope you guys can help me out with this, thanks!
