The vector equation of a line passing through a point with position vector and perpendicular to two lines with vector equations = + λ and = + λ, is given by = + λ() because as we know that vector product between two vectors will give you a vector whose direction is perpendicular to both the vectors, so the required equation is parallel to this vector and hence this is the equation.
Now we are given with,
= (+–3) and the lines perpendicular to required line are,
= +λ(2+–3) and = (2+)+μ(++)
= 2+–3 and = ++
Therefore, the required equation is,
= +–3 + ρ(4–5+)
