1. Determine the vector equation of the line which is parallel to the vector 2i-10j-8k and which passes through the point (5, -1, 6).

2. vector equation

3. 2i-10j-8k (5, -1, 6)
5i-j+6k+landa(2i-10j-8k)

Is this all I need to do to complete this question, please?

I don't see an equation - an equation always has = in it. Also, this Greek letter - $\lambda$ - is named "lambda."
