    Post Planes and Lines III

    Question 3: Two beams on a construction site can be described as
    s1 = {x = 1 - 2t, y = 2 + 6t, z = 4 - 8t 0 ≤ t ≤ 5
    and
    s2 = {x = 12 + 2t, y = 4 + t, z = -8 + t -10 ≤ t ≤ 10
    These two beams are to be be connected by a third beam that is perpendicular to both s1 and s2. In what points on s1 and s2 should the third beam be attached?

    Truly, you'll have to solve the first two. This one may be pretty obvious after that.
