Now choose a point of L1 and calculate the distance of this point to the plane. If t = 0 then Q(4, -8, 7) is a point of the line. Plug in the coordinates of Q into the equation of to calculate the distance QP:
The positive sign indicates that the point Q and the origin are on different sides of the plane P.
A line through A(4, -8, 7) and perpendicular to P cuts the plane in F(1, -2, 1). F is the mid point of the segment AA'. Use the midpoint formula toget the coordinates of A'(-2, 4, -5).
Thus the line L1' has the equation:
