Find the coordina

Answer :

Given, Equation of the plane is given, 2x - y + z + 1 = 0


To Find: Find the image of the point in the plane


Explanation: We have the equation of the plane is given


2x - y + z + 1 = 0 - - - (i)


And, A coordinate is given on Point P (3, 2, 1)


Let us consider a point on the foot of the perpendicular, and the coordinates of this point are


Q(p, q, r)


So, The distance of the line PQ is (p - 3 , q - 2 , r - 1)


And, The distance of the line PQ which is perpendicular to the given plane will be



By solving this, we get


p = 2k + 3


q = - k + 2


r = k + 1


Now, Q(p, q, r) lies on the plane, then


2p - q + r + 1 = 0


Put the value of p, q and r we get


2(2k + 3) - ( - k + 2) + (k + 1) + 1 = 0


6k + 6 = 0


6k = - 6


K = - 1


Since, Foot of the perpendicular from P is given by Q(1, 3, 0)


Now, Let us consider R(a, b, c) be the image of point P


So, Q is the midpoint of PR


Using midpoint formula, we get



(a, b, c) = (2×1 - 3, 2×3 - 2, 2×0 - 1)


(a, b, c) = ( - 1, 4, - 1)


And, The perpendicular distance PQ is given by


PQ =


PQ =


PQ =


Hence, The distance of the mirror image of a point is
