Would anyone know how to begin a problem where a function z(x,y) is given and x(t),y(t),z(t). Thanks!

the normal line to the surface is expressed as: N i j k ; N i j k from the given line we have the symmetric equations: which gives us: i j k

so we would solve for where <y,x,-1> is equal to <-2,5,3>, wouldn't that be never because of k, -1 cannot equal 3

So then, i j k i j k
