The normal direction to 3 x + 7 y- 5 z = 21 is h 3 , 7 ,- 5 i , then the line that paases through (2 , 4 , 5) and points in that direction is given by x ( t ) = 2 + 3 t , y ( t ) = 4 + 7 t , z ( t ) = 5- 5 t . 12. The z-axis is given by x ( t ) = 0, y ( t ) = 0, and z ( t ) = t . 22. The plane parallel to the plane 3 x + y + z = 7 also has the form 3 x + y + z = D for some value D . To get what D is, simply plug in the point (1 ,- 1 , 3) into the equation, so D = 3- 1 + 3 = 5. The equation is 3 x + y + z = 5. 28. To find the point of intersection of two lines given by parametric equations, we need to find the parameters t and s for which the corresponding coordinates all match. For the x-coordinate, we have t = 2 s + 2, and for y ,- t + 2 = s + 3. These two should suffice to give us the values for t and s . Plugging the first into the second, we have- 2 s- 2 + 2 = s + 3, so s =- 1, hence t = 0. We have to check the z-coordinates agree too. Indeed, t...
