    Smile Vector equation of a plane

    Can someone please help me with the following question

    Let u = i−2j, v = 2i+3j, w = i+2j−k.

    Find a Cartesian equation for the plane P containing the point Q(3,2,1) and
    parallel to u and w.


    thanks

    Write the equation of the plane that contains Q(3,2,1) which has the normal u \times w.
