The x-coordiante

Answer :

Let (x1, y1, z1) = (2, 2, 1)

(x2, y2, z2) = (5, 1, -2)


The equation of a line passing through points (x1, y1, z1) and


(x2, y2, z2) is given by-



Thus, the equation of line PQ is-




taking 1st and 3rd part of equality,



x - 2 = -(z - 1)


x - 2 = -z + 1


z = -x + 3


Putting x = 4, we will get the z-coordinate of the point


z = -4 + 3 = -1


Thus, the z-coordinate of the point lying on the line PQ whose x-coordinate is 4 is -1.
