Triple Integral

    Hey guys, I'm really really confused on how we come about the plane z = x - y. I always have been and it's proving to hurt my progress, any help will be accepted.

    Start from the general equation of a plane, Ax+ By+ Cz= D, then let x= y= z= 0; x= z= 1, y= 0; and x= y= 1, z= 0; to get three equations to solve for A, B, and C. Of course, there is no "unique" equation for a plane. Any multiple, kAx+ kBy+ kCz= kD, is also an equation for the same plane.
