does the point lie in the plane
i started by writing the parametric equations
subbing in into the corresponding equations
simplifying gives
thus
what do i do now? i know i need to figure out p and q i just cant figure it out
the book says that p=4 and q=2, as answers. these i am assuming are supposed to be obtained by substitution into the parametric equations, as we were doing earlier, but i do not know how to obtain those numbers. also, since they do not match up, does that not simply mean that the point does not lie in the plane?
