How do I figure out if a line is parallel to a plane? An example equation could be: line: x=(4, 3, 8) + t(4, 6, -18) plane: x= (9, 3, 7) + k(6, 5, 9) + t(8, 8, 3) Thanks for the help!

Show that the system of linear equations: $\displaystyle (4, 3, 8) + t(4, 6, -18)= (9, 3, 7) + u(6, 5, 9) + v(8, 8, 3)$ has no solutions. 2. Show that the mininmum distance between the line and plane $\displaystyle >0$ CB
