    Sorry, I'm a little dim-witted, but isn't "0=-10" a bit, illogical? I'm being a bit confrontational because it doesn't look like my example in the txtbook, even though I don't understand it.

    i was just trying to find the value of t so i let t=0 and to see how far i was off then just find t

    r=(-3,2,7)+t(3,6,2) r=(-3+3t,2+6t,7+2t) sub in 3x-2y+4z=5 3(-3+3t)-2(2+6t)+4(7+2t)=5 -9+9t-4-12t+28+8t=5 15+5t=5 5t=-10 t=-2

    Cause the answer section just says yes, no, yes, yes, something. How do I know if either yes or no?

    So, If I get a value for t, it must be a yes?

    if you had the equation y=2x + 3 does the point (3,9) lie on the line yes it does .. check sub it in 9=(2)(3)+3 9=9 true now when you make 3 planes x,y,z your just check does the point lie on the plane they use word points and vector interchangeably

    I'll just say yes. So If I have a value for t, it's a yes?
