## Homework Statement

Parameterize the curve of intersection of the cylinder x^2 + y^2 = 16 and the plane x + z = 5

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

i think i must first parameterize the plane

x = 5t, y = 0, z = -5t

then i think i plug those into the eq. of the cylinder

25t^2 = 16

t = .8

so x = 4, y = o, z = -4, am i on the right track, i feel like i made it up
