Can someone please help me find the vector equation for the line through point R(3,0,-3) normal to the plane-4x-12y+4z=-24 ?

I have the normal asn = -4i-12j+4k, but am at lost to the next step.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have the normal as**n = -**4**i**-12**j**+4**k**, but am at lost to the next step.

The obvious point (which I just

**have**to mention) is that when t= 0, this is (3, 0, -3), the given point, and its direction is given by the "slope", <1, 3, -1>, as given by the normal to the plane.
