II need to find a vector parallel to the line of intersection between the plane 2x - y - 3z = 0 and the plane x + y + z = 1. I know I should know how to do this but my mind is drawing a complete blank!!!!! Thanks

The normal vector of the first plane is and the second is , note that they are linearly independent. So a vector parallel to the line of intersection of them is given by
