Homework Help: Math - Intersection of planes

Posted by Shaila on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at 3:08am.

Find the vector equation of the line of intersection for the pair of planes.
Plane one: x+5y-3z-8=0
Plane two: y+2z-4=0

I did half of the work but now i am stuck.

the normal of the planes are not parallel and therefore a solution exists, you simultaneously solve the equations. I got -13z+12=0. Now if i let z = t then how do i find the 'y' and the 'x'
