# 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 + 3 y + z = 7 ,   x − 5 z = 0

To determine

Weather the equations of plane x+3y+z=7 and x5z=0 are parallel, perpendicular or neither parallel nor perpendicular.

Explanation

Given Information:

The equations of planes

x+3y+z=7x5z=0

Consider the provided equations:

x+3y+z=7 and x5z=0

The standard equations of planes are a1x+b1y+c1z+d1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2z+d=20

Planes to be parallel

a1a2=b1b2=c1c2=k …… (1)

Planes to be perpendicular

a1a2+b1b2+c1c2=0 …… (2)

Equation of planes

x+3y+z=7 …… (3)

And

x5z=0 …… (4)

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

a1=1b1=3c1=1d1=7

And, on comparing equation (4) with standard equation of plane a2x
