I tried looking through my notes and textbook for this one, but unless there is a direct connection, I don't understand how to apply it to this question.

I managed to answer some unrelated questions beforehand, but I don't know how I managed to solve them...

So I figured out the normals were [2,3,7] and [4,6,14]

I can see that I just have to multiply 2,3,7 by 2 to get the other plane. So would that be conidental or parallel and distinct?

that should be parallel and distinct.. if u can just multiply them by a scalar, but i suck at this, so idk.. @Mertsj @Zarkon

Wait. Maybe I'll try something out here.

how is [2,3,7] the normal vector?

Er, I just looked at my notes and inferred that...

if 2x+4y7z2=0 is your equation then <2,4,7> is the normal vector

Ok, got that. For the other then, it must be 4,6,14?

So from this, how would I determine the answer? Or do I need more?

if the planes are parrallel then the cross product of their normal vectors should be 0

two plane are parallel iff their normal vectors are parellel

I'll try that cross product thing. Thanks guys. I'lll cry out if I have a problem.

two non zero vectors \(\vec{v}\) and \(\vec{u}\) are parallel iff \(\vec{v}=c\vec{u}\) for some scalar \(c\)

is one of the vectors a constant multiple of the other?

IsTimBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
The first one, multiplied by 2, equals the second one.

if you have the equations 2x+4y7z2=0 4x+6y14z8=0 then you have the normal vectors <2,4,7> and <4,6,14> are these constant multiples of each other?

That 4y was suppose to be a 3y....

I did mistype that. No wonder my confusion. And probably yours...

ZarkonBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
then <4,6,14>=2<2,3,7> and so they are parallel...and therefore their planes are parallel

Awesome. Thank you. This was relatively simple after all...
