8. Find the vector equation of the line in which the 2 planes 2x - 5y + 3z = 12 and 3x + 4y - 3z = 6 meet.

    just take the cross-product of the normals to find the direction of the vector:

    | i j k |
    | 2 -5 3 |
    | 3 4 -3 |
    = 3i+15j+23k

    Now find a point on the line:

    if x=0, y=-18,z=-26

    the line is thus

    3ti + (-18+15t)j + (-26+23t)k

    thanks steve.

    do you know how to do these ones? :(

    4. Write a vector equation of the line through the point (5, -2, 3) and parallel to the vector v=[4, -3, 1]

    5. Determine an equation for the plane that is exactly between the points A(-1, 2, 4) and B(3, 1, -4).

    6. Find out if the line r = (1, 3, 8) + t (-2, 5, 7) is parallel to the plane 3x + 4y - 2z = 1

    7. Where does the line r = (1, 2, -5) + t (2, -3, 1) meet the plane 2x + 5y - 3z = 6?

    for the #4 i got

    r = (5, -2, 3) + t(4, -3, 1)

    --- can you please help me on 5, 6, 7. instead since i got 4. thanks steve
