3. A point 𝑃(3,0,5) lies on a plane that can be defined by the scalar equation 𝐴π‘₯ + 𝐡𝑦 + 𝐢𝑧 + 𝐷 = 0. A normal

vector, 𝑛⃗⃗, to this plane is (2, βˆ’3,1). Find the scalar equation. [3K]

4. How many solutions are there between the plane 𝑃1: (π‘₯, 𝑦, 𝑧) = (4, βˆ’3, βˆ’1) + 𝑠(1, βˆ’3,1) + 𝑑(2,4, βˆ’3) and the

line 𝐿1: (π‘₯, 𝑦, 𝑧, ) = (3,1 βˆ’ 2) + π‘˜(βˆ’1, βˆ’1,1)? If there is/are solutions, find the value of the solution(s). [4K]

5. How many solutions are there between planes 𝑃1: 2π‘₯ βˆ’ 𝑦 + 2𝑧 = 2 and 𝑃2 : βˆ’ π‘₯ + 2𝑦 + 𝑧 = 1? If there is/are

solutions, find the value of the solution(s). [4A]

 

6. Dustin is trying to design a weapon to fight the Demogorgon. His model has three planes, and he needs to figure

out their configuration. He thinks they intersect in a line or at a point. Is he correct? Justify your answer. If there

is/are solutions, find the value of the solution(s) [5T]

𝑃1: π‘₯ + 4𝑦 + 3𝑧 βˆ’ 5 = 0

𝑃2: π‘₯ + 3𝑦 + 2𝑧 βˆ’ 4 = 0

𝑃3: π‘₯ + 𝑦 βˆ’ 𝑧 + 1 = 0

 

7. Lucas does not like Dustin weapon and decides to design his own. His model has a plane that contains the point

𝐴(βˆ’5,2, βˆ’4) and two direction vectors, 𝐴𝐡⃗⃗⃗⃗⃗⃗ = (4,8,1)and 𝐴𝐢⃗⃗⃗⃗⃗⃗ = (βˆ’3, βˆ’2,0). Which of the following statement(s)

about this plane is/are true? Justify your answer. [4T,1C]

i. The plane has a parametric equation that can be defined as follows:

{

π‘₯ = βˆ’5 + 4𝑑 βˆ’ 3𝑠

𝑦 = 2 + 8𝑑 βˆ’ 2𝑠

𝑧 = βˆ’4 + 𝑑 + 𝑠𝑠

ii. The plane has a vector equation that can be defined as (π‘₯, 𝑦, 𝑧) = (βˆ’5,2, βˆ’4) + 𝑑(3,2,0) +

𝑠(4,8,1)

iii. The point 𝐷(31,6,0) lies on the plane

iv. The 𝑧-intercept of the plane is 0,0, βˆ’5)
