Where does the line [x, y, z] = [6, 10, 1] + t[3, 4, -1] meet the xy-plane?

The x-y plane is where z=0.

So solve the equation of the line where z=0, i.e.

z=1+t[-1]=0

=>

t=1

Substitute t=1 into

[x, y, z] = [6, 10, 1] + t[3, 4, -1]

gives

[x,y,z]=[6,10,1]+1[3,4,-1]=[9,14,0]

So the final answer for this one would be

[x,y,z]=[6,10,1]+1[3,4,-1]=[9,14,0] ?

Thank you!

Right.

You're welcome!
