Write a vector equation AND parametric equations of the line through the points A(6,-1,5) and B(-2,-3,6)

direction vector = [8,2,-1]

a vector equation
r = (6,-1,5) + t(8,2,-1)

use that to write the parametrics

how do i write parametrics

  • Calculus -

    since you have
    r = (6,-1,5) + t(8,2,-1), which is correct we can say

    x = 6 = 8t
    y = -1 + 2t
    z = 5 - t
