Find every point on the surface of the ellipsoid x^2+4y^2+9z^2=16 at which the normal line at the point passes through the center (0,0,0) of the ellipsoid. I understand obtaining the normal lines by taking the partial derivatives, but I do not know what to do after I obtain the parametrized normal lines. Thank you for the help.
