# Find the equation

Given: equation of the planes and

To find: the equation of the plane passing through the line of intersection of the two givenand parallel to the x-axis.

The given equation of planes can be written in the Cartesian form, as shown below

x+y+z-1=0……..(i)

2x+3y-z+4=0……..(ii)

Hence given equation of planes can be written in Cartesian form are

x+y+z-1=0

2x+3y-z+4=0

The equation of a plane passing through the line of intersection of these two planes is,

x+y+z-1+λ(2x+3y-z+4)=0

x+y+z-1+2 λx+3 λy-z λ+4λ=0

(1+2λ)x+(1+3λ)y+(1-λ)z+(4λ-1)=0……………(iii)

Now, direction ratios of normal to the plane (iii), are,

a1=1+2λ, b1=1+3λ, c1=1-λ

Now the direction ratios of x-axis are,

a2=1, b2=0, c2=0

Since the required plane (iii) is parallel to x-axis, then

a1a2+b1b2+ c1c2=0

Substituting the corresponding values, we get

(1+2λ)(1)+(1+3λ)(0)+(1-λ)(0)=0

1+2λ+0+0=0

2λ=-1

So substituting the value of λ in equation (iii), we get

-y+3z-6=0

y-3z+6=0

Is the required equation of the plane, it can also be written as
