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

  • linear algebra -

    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
