Find the equation of a plane passing through e(1,2,3), f(2,5,4) and g(3,4,6)
A normal to the plane is EF x FG (which I deciphered to mean (F-E) and (G-F)
since it then said (1,3,1) x (1,-1,2).
Now the part that really throws me off is here...it then says the answer is (7,-1,-4) therefore the equation is 7x - y - 4z = D. Afterwards they plugged in one of the points into the equation to get D.
But where did (7,-1,-4) come from?? Help, I'm so lost!
