How can I draw a plane with 2 vectors coming out of it from one point at 2 different angles?

It is a plane of the form ax + by + cz = 0 with 2 vectors <a,b,c> and <u,v,w> coming out of the plane from the same point.

Actually that question really is confused.

For one, there is only one angle between any two vectors.

A plane $\displaystyle ax+by+cz=0$ contains the origin $\displaystyle (0,0,0)$.

But more important, the vector $\displaystyle <a,b,c>$ is perpendicular to any vector parallel to that plane.

Now maybe you can rephrase the question. - Dec 25th 2011, 03:22 PMdwsmithRe: Drawing a plane

As far as I know, LaTeX is a text formating language (with some diagram capabilities), not a "graphics" program. There is no way of "drawing" in LaTeX except by inserting graphics created through another program.
