Textbook Problem

In vector form (as in Exercises 5 and 6), find an equation for the line through the point 4 ,   1 ,   - 3 and with the direction vector 1 ,   2 ,   3 .

To determine

To find:

The equation for the line through the point 4, 1, -3 and with the direction vector 1, 2, 3.

Explanation

The vector form of the line through P1x1, y1, z1 and P2x2, y2, z2 is given by the equation x, y,z=x1, y1, z1+na, b, c

Here x, y,z is the point on the line and n is any real number

a, b, c=x2-x1, y2-y1, z2-z1 is the direction vector
