Given the four points A(0,1,3), B(1,-3,-2), C(4,2,-1) and D(3,6,4) use vector methods to:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) show these points are coplanar: I just did a determinant of AB BC and CD

and got an answer of 0 so it is complanar

Im dont know how to do the next 3:

(b)find the equation of the plane;

(c) find the parametric equation of the line perpendicular to the plane that passes through the point X=(-3, 0, -2);

(d) Find the shortest distance of the point X = (-3,0, -2) to the plane

Thanks for your time.
