Now usually this would conclude that there is no point of intersection and that the line and plane are parallel..BUT... since the value that 0t=0! wouldnt this mean that the line and plane are coincident?
Please show me how to prove this, i do not fully understand whether they are coincident or not and i need this for my assignment due monday!
