    Equation of plane help

    I need to find the equation of the plane that passes through the line that intersects Plane A and Plane B and is parallel to the x-axis

    Plane A: 4x - 3y - z - 1 = 0
    Plane B: 2x + 4y + z - 5 = 0

    Thanks,
    -Mike

    You'll kick yourself.

    Solve one for 'x' and substitute for 'x' in the other.

    Simplify and think about it.

    Note: Parallel to the 'x' axis is a REALLY BIG clue.
