How would you go about finding cartesian equations of intersecting planes when you have the vector equation of the line they intersect at. THere in obviously an infinate number of solution. The catch is that all the x,y,z values of the planes normals must not be 0.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I was thinking you but the lines equation into parametric for then from that you can put it into a matrix, then you can somehow "unsolve" it (at the moment in our geometry class we have learned how to solve systems using the matrix but this seems to be the reverse.) One of my friends did this problem that way and it seems to work but I was wondering if there is something else that I should be doing.

thanks
