    System of equations from span

    I need to find a system of equations with solutions that are the span of:

    \left(\begin{array}{ccc}1\\0\\2\end{array}\right) and \left(\begin{array}{ccc}6\\0\\2\end{array}\right)

    I know that span can be expressed with parameters:

    \left(\begin{array}{ccc}r + 6s\\0\\2r + 2s\end{array}\right)

    But I don't know where to go from here

    What you're describing above is actually the xz-plane (with the equation y=0).
