Find the coordina

The Cartesian equation of line passing through A(x,y,z),B(x1,y1,z1) and C(x2, y2, z2) is given by B is (0, - 1,3) and C is (2, - 3, - 1)

Substituting the values we get  General coordinates of P is (2λ, - 2λ - 1, - 4λ + 3)

Direction ratio of AP(2λ + 1, - 2λ - 9, 4λ - 1)

AP is perpendicular to BC

2(2λ + 1) - 2( - 2λ - 9) - 4( - 4λ - 1) = 0

4λ + 2 + 4λ + 18 + 16λ + 4 = 0

24 + 24λ = 0

λ = - 1

P( - 2,1,7)

Coordinates of Foot of perpendicular are ( - 2,1,7)

Coordinates of image of A is P’(a,b,c) is a = - 3 b = - 6 c = 10

P’( - 3, - 6,10)
