Let L be the line given by

L intersects the plane

at the point

Find parametric equations for the line through P which lies in the plane and is perpendicular to L

**Attempt:**
Direction Vector v =

Normal Vector n =

Point:

v =

putting it together

Parametric equation:

Somehow, i dont think this is correct?

You have a mistake in concept. Your line is

**WHY?**

Re: Find parametric equation

Are you saying i should use

instead of

Can you read?

You posted: Parametric equation:

**THAT IS INCORRECT!**

THIS IS CORRECT: Parametric equation: .

Then I asked you why that is correct?
