Well, I'm learning plane sketching in R3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

One of the questions is 5y- z - 10 = 0

It is my understanding that the y intercept will be 2, and the z intercept will be -10.

With the absence of an x-term it should be parallel (?) to the x-axis.

I sketch the three axis, note the two points (0,2,0) and (0,0,-10) as the intercepts, but I have no idea how to actually draw the plane itself from this point on.

Unfortunately I have no scanner available to me to even show you what I have so far.

If you can even (verbally) suggest how I draw it, that'd be great.

# Sketching a simple plane in R3 (should be easy, but not for me :P)
