I read the definition that a plane is a point and two vectors with the equation being plane sum = {OP + tv + sw} where v and w are vectors and t and s are real numbers. This is called the parametric description of the plane. I haven't seen the equation in this form before though.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone explain what these values stand for/how to use this equation or direct me to a page that explains it? I just see the regular plane equation when I google this.
