Show that the line of intersection of the planes\[x+2yz=2\mbox{ and } 3x+2y+2z=7\]is parallel to the line \[\langle x,y,x \rangle = \langle 1+6t,35t,24t \rangle\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my attempt at a solution. First I found normal vectors to the planes. \[\vec{n}=\langle 1,2,1 \rangle\]\[\vec{m}=\langle 3,2,2\rangle\]then the cross product to get the vector parallel to that.\[\vec{n}\times \vec{m} = \langle 6, 5, 4 \rangle\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so wouldn't this be the direction of the line formed by the intersection of the two planes?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so maybe what I am doing wrong is finding the direction of the second line. how would I do this? find two points on the line and then use the displacement vector?
