The coordinates of the point where the line through the points A(5, 1, 6) and B(3, 4, 1) crosses the yz-plane is
A. (0, 17, -13)



D. none of these

Answer :

We first need to find the equation of a line passing through the two given points

taking fixed point as

and the parallel vector will be

equation of the line in cartesian form

Assume above equation to be equal to k, a constant

And y-z plane have x-coordinate as zero we may get

Now we can find y and z

The coordinate where the line meets y-z plane is
