Find the scalar equation for the plane passing through the point P=(0, 2, −1) and containing the line L defined by
x = 2+t
y = 4+t
z = −6+7t

Since t is a variable, you can obtain three different points on the plane:
a) (0,2,1) Given in the question
b) (2,4,6) by setting t=0
c) (3,5,1) by setting t=1
If you know three points in a plane, you can use them to find a unique equation for the plane. Try it out
