    A set of parametric equations

    Find a set of parametric equations for the line through the point
    P(2,1, 0) which is perpendicular

    to the plane described by the general equation
    x + z = 2.

    ok so that's how i did

    -1i + 0j + 1k = 2

    x = 2 - k
    y = -1
    z = k

    Is it correct?
    Thank you
