How do I write the Symmetric Equation of a line given the following parametric equations: (where t is a scalar)

x=0t

y=0t

z=1+1t

I know normally I would solve each equation for t and set the equations equal to one another. However, I can not solve for t in the first two equations. What do I do? Thanks for your help.
