Homework Help: math

Posted by jen on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at 4:32pm.

Hi I need help with this math problem:

The plane that contains the points (8,3,1), (2,6,3), and (4,6,2) has an equation of the form
ax + by + cz = d. Find coefficients for this equation, trying two different approaches to the problem. One method uses vectors, another does not.

I first tried solving the systems of equations and the dot product but I got stuck in the process.

Thank you.
