1. Parametarizing equation?

How do you parameterize an equation?

i have 3x + 3y + 2z = 5. I just need to know how to make it into parametric form. i learned it before but i cant remember..

There are an infinite number of possibilites. One of them is:

x = t

y = s

z = (5 - 3t - 3s)/2

where $\displaystyle t \in R$ and $\displaystyle s \in R$.

3. By the way, uyou don't "parameterize an equation". Those are parametric equations for the plane which is also described by the equation you give.
