_{o}, y_{o}, z_{o}). Find the equation of line 3 which goes through A and crosses L1 and L2.

Suppose line 1 is

Line 2 is

where the P and Q are given points and the

Then a line from one to the other would be

Set that equal to your given point. You have three given coordinates of the point and three parameters s,t, and u to work with.

R_{1}(t) as ther_{0}vector in theR_{3}(u) vector equation instead of just inputting the given point A there.

The line

[Edit -- Added] The general formula you get is long and messy but doing it for specific lines and points isn't too difficult.
