QUESTION:

Write a vector equation and parametric equations for a plane that satisfies each set of conditions.

a) contains the point P̥(2,-4,6); has direction vectors a = [6,-7,0] and b = [4,1,3]

b) contains the point P̥(-5,9,-3); is parallel to the lines [x,y,z] = [1,-2,7] + s[4,-1,-3] and [x,y,z] = [7,-2,15] + t[1,6,-8]

c) contains the points A(4,-2,5), B(3,-3,1), and C(5,2,8)

d) has x-intercept 12, y-intercept -4, and z-intercept 7

please and thank you!

  • CALCULUS EXAM REVIEW -

    To write the vector equation of a plane you need two different direction vectors on the plane, and a point on the plane

    a) you are given exactly what I described above
    so
    r = (2,-4,6) + s(6,-7,0) + t(4,1,3)

    It is easy to write these in parametric form
    x = 2 + 6s + 4t
    y = -4 -7t
    z = 6 = 3t , it should be obvious what I did.

    b) each of the lines gives you a direction vector, and you are given a point, so ....... (same question)

    c) You can find vector AB and vector AC or vector BC , and you have the choice of 3 different points,

    d) "has x-intercept 12, y-intercept -4, and z-intercept 7" translates to ...
    you are given the points (12,0,0), (0,-4,0) and (0.0.7). Now it becomes the same kind of problem as c)
