MAT 267 Richard Reynolds; No TI-89s or TI 92s 1 1) A) Find a vector equation of the line through the point (3, 2, 1) that is normal to the plane 2 x - y + 3 z = - 21 . B) Find the value of t where the above line intersects the given plane. C) Find the point on the plane where the above line intersects the given plane. D) Use (C) to find the distance from the point (3,2,1) to the plane 2 x - y + 3 z = - 21 .
