## Homework Statement

H is subset of R^3 dfined by H = {(a,b,c) element of R^3: a+2b-c = 0}. X=(r,1.2), Y =(1,2,q) are two vectors. Find the values r and q such that both X and Y belong to H

## The Attempt at a Solution

To be honest, I don't know where to start. I'm studying this by myself and the book doesn't have an example similar to this question. All that i know is that [1,2,-1] is a null space of H. This would help me find the spanning family for H: I can write a in term of b and c i.e a =-2b+c. So (a,b,c) = (-2b+c,b,c) = b(-2,1,0)+c(1,0,1)..therefore (-2,1,0) and (1,0,1) form a spanning family for H. How can I find r and q then? I'd appreciate your help.

Thanks.
