Remember that to get vector equation you need any point that lies on to the line and a vector that goes in the same direction.
You could pick point P or point Q.
You could try\[\mathbf{r}(t)=\mathbf{P}+t(\mathbf{Q}-\mathbf{P}),\qquad0\leq t\leq1.\]Notice that if \(t=0\), then \(\mathbf{r}(t)=\mathbf{P}\), and if \(t=1\), then \(\mathbf{r}(t)=\mathbf{Q}\).

How do you make the letters bold @across ?
@across Do I just plug in the values P and Q for that formula?
just write Large before you type
@zordoloom did you get it now ?
So the formula that across provided, Can I use that to find the equations?
first find the required parallel vector to the line PQ=<6-2,2-0,2-0)= <4,2,2>
yes you can use that .
so, i end up with r(t)=(2,0,0)+t(4,2,-2). Is this correct?
r(t)=(2,0,0)+t(4,2,2 ) not -2 !!!
welcome :)
