does "normal to the surface" mean a tangent line/plane?

No, I would be inclined to think that "normal to the surface refers to I line that is perpendicular rather than tangent. Although this particular lesson does involve tangent lines and such.

The method is: Your knowledge about the relationship between the equation of a plane and it's normal at a point (a,b,c). So in this case the answer should be: 10(x-2)+15(y-0)+(z+4)=0

Correction, should be -(z+4)... But you get the point I hope. :)
