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 $\displaystyle s \in R$.
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.
