(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the parametric equation for the line through (1,0,-1) and parallel to the line 1/3(x-4)=1/2y=z+2

2. Relevant equations

Vector equation - r=ro+tv

Perhaps the scaler equation? I'm not entirely sure.

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure where to begin; I don't see any examples in the textbook to go on. I'm not sure if I can read the line given to me and pull out points to use and then create a vector with it.

Thanks
