Answer :

Given: Cartesian equation of line are 3x + 1 = 6y – 2 = 1 - z

To find: fixed point through which the line passes through, its direction ratios and the vector equation.

Formula Used: Equation of a line is

Vector form:

Cartesian form:

where is a point on the line and is a vector parallel to the line and also its direction ratio.


The Cartesian form of the line can be rewritten as:

Therefore, and

So, the line passes through and direction ratios of the line are (2, 1, -6) and vector form is:
