*Thus, .*

**Question 4. The line is parallel to the plane . Find m.**

**Solution:**

*Give that the equation of line is and the equation of plane is *

*So, *

*If a line is parallel to a plane, then the normal to the plane is perpendicular to the line.*

*⇒ *

*⇒ *

*⇒ *

**Question 6. Find the vector equation of the line through the origin which is perpendicular to the plane .**

**Solution:**

Given that the line is perpendicular to the plane

So, the line is parallel to the normal .

As we know that the equation of a line is pass through and parallel to is

**Question 7. Find the equation of the plane through (2, 3, −4) and (1, −1, 3) and parallel to the x-axis.**

**Solution:**

*Given that the equation of the plane through point (2, 3, -4) is *

*a(x − 2) + b(y − 3)+c(z + 4) = 0 …(1)*

*Since this plane passes through point (1, -1, 3).*

*⇒ a(1 − 2) + b( −1 − 3) + c( 3 + 4) = 0*

*⇒ − a − 4b + 7c = 0 …(2)*

*Equation(1) is parallel to x-axis and is perpendicular to the yz-plane whose equation is x = 0 or 1 . x + 0 . y + 0 . z = 0*

*⇒ a(1) + b(0) + c(0) = 0 …(3)*

*One solving eq(1), (2), and (3), we get*

*⇒ 7y + 4z – 5 = 0 is the required equation.*

**Question 8. Find the equation of a plane passing through the points (0, 0, 0) and (3, −1, 2) and parallel to the line **

**Solution:**

*Given that the plane pass through point(0, 0, 0), so the equation of the plane is a(x − 0) + b(y − 0)+c(z + 0) = 0.*

*⇒ ax + by + cz = 0 …(1)*

*and the same plane passes through point (3, -1, 2). So, the equation of the plane is*

*3a – b + 2c = 0 …(2)*

*Equation(1) is parallel to the given line so, *

*a(1) + b(-4) + c (7) = 0 …(3)*

*On solving eq(1), (2), and (3), we get*

*⇒ x – 19y – 11z = 0 *

*Hence, the required equation of the plane is x – 19y – 11z = 0 *

### Question 9. Find the vector and Cartesian equations of the line passing through (1, 2, 3) and parallel to the planes and

**Solution:**

Given that the equation of the line passing through (1, 2, 3) is

…(1)

Here, the given line is parallel to plane x – y + 2z = 5

So, a × 1 + b × – 1 + c × 2 = 0

On solving the equation (3) and (4) we get,

⇒

∴ a = – 3k, b = 5k and c = 4k

**Solution:**

Let us consider a, b and c be the direction ratios.

So,

⇒ a + 4b + c = 0

and, 5a + 2b – 4c = 0

On solving the above two equations, we get

⇒

As we know that the line is parallel to plan a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2}z + d_{2} = 0, when a_{1}a_{2} + b_{1}b_{2} + c_{1}c_{2} = 0

So, the line with direction ratio(a, b, c) is parallel to plane 4x – 2y – 5z – 2 = 0

aa_{1} + bb_{1} + cc_{1} = 0

2(4) + (-1)(-2) + (2)(-5) = 0

Hence proved that the line of section of the given plane is parallel to the given plane.

So,

…..(1)

Also, the line is parallel to the normal of the plane.

⇒

⇒ a = 2λ, b = -λ , c = 3λ

Now put all these values in eq(1), we get

So, the line passes through a point whose position vector is and parallel to

So,

**⇒** is the required equation.

**Solution:**

Given that the equation of the plane through the point (2, 2, -1)

a(x – 2) + b(y – 2) + c(z + 1) = 0 ….(1)

Also, the plane passes through points (3, 4, 2)

a(3 – 2) + b(4 – 2)+ c(2 + 1) = 0

or, a + 2b + 3c = 0 …(2)

As we know that the line is parallel to plan a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2}z + d_{2} = 0, when a_{1}a_{2} + b_{1}b_{2} + c_{1}c_{2} = 0

According to the question, the plane(1) is parallel to the line whose direction ratios are 7, 0, 6

So, 7a + 0b + 6c = 0 …(3)

Now, on solving the equation (1), (2), and (3), we have,

⇒ 12x + 15y – 14z – 68 = 0 is the required equation.
