Find symmetric equations for the line through (4, -11, -7)

that is parallel to the line x = 2+5t, y = −1+ 1

3 t, z = 9−2t.

Find parametric equations for the line through (2, -2, 15)

that is parallel to the xz-plane and the xy-plane.

I broke the given line down into its original form (r1 plus t x the direction vector). It's clearly the direction vector that the line must be parallel to. I have the r1 vector and the point given in the prompt, but I'm not sure what to do next.

As for the second one, I figured I would want to take it as the line parallel to the line of intersection of the two planes, which would be the x-axis. Is this the right way to look at it? If so, what then?
