    Need help with Scalar, parametric and Vector equations

    1) Write the scalar equation of each line given the normal vector n and point Po
    A) n = [3, 1], Po (2,4)

    2) Given each scalar equation, write a vector equation
    5x-2y =13

    3) Given the points A(3,4,-5) and B(9,-2,7). Write a Vector equation of the line passing through A and B

    Hi



    In 3), I used the point A to the vectorial equation but you can use the point A or the point B.
