Find the Cartesian equations of the line which passes through the point (1, 3, -2) and is parallel to the line given by Also, find the vector form of the equations so obtained.
Given: line passes through (1, 3, -2) and is parallel to the line
To find: equation of line in vector and Cartesian form
Formula Used: Equation of a line is
where is a point on the line and is a vector parallel to the line.
Since the line (say L1) is parallel to another line (say L2), L1 has the same direction ratios as that of L2
Since the equation of L2 is
Vector form of the line is:
Cartesian form of the line is:
