    (2,-1,-1) is the normal vector? or just a point?

    The equation of the plane is 2 x -y -z = d\\ to find d. The plane has to go through the point (1,-1,0} 2(1) -(-1) -0 =d 2 + 1 =d d=3 The equation of the plane is 2 x -y -z =3

    seems right except that that would be containing the given vector, as opposed to being orthogonal.
