# Comparing Planes In Exercises 13–22, determine whether the planes a 1 x + b 1 y + c 1 z = d 1 and a 2 x + b 2 y + c 2 z = d 2 are parallel, perpendicular, or neither. The planes are parallel when there exists a nonzero constant k such that a 1 = k a 2 ,     b 1 = k b 2 , and c 1 = k c 2 , and are perpendicular when a 1 a 2 + b 1 b 2 + c 1 c 2 = 0. x − 5 y − z = 1 , 5 x − 25 y − 5 z = − 3

To determine

Weather the equations of plane x5yz=1 and 5x25y5z=3 are parallel, perpendicular or neither parallel nor perpendicular.

Explanation

Given Information:

The equations of planes

x5yz=15x25y+5z=3

Consider the provided equations:

x5yz=1 and 5x25y5z=3

The standard equations of plane are a1x+b1y+c1z+d1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2z+d2=0

Planes to be parallel

a1a2=b1b2=c1c2=k …… (1)

Planes to be perpendicular

a1a2+b1b2+c1c2=0 …… (2)

Equation of planes

x5yz=1 …… (3)

And

5x25y5z=3 …… (4)

Now, on comparing equation (3) with standard equation of plane a1x+b1y+c1z+d1=0:

a1=1b1<
