Suppose that the line ℓ is represented by r(t)=⟨18+4t,13+4t,10+2t⟩ and the plane P is represented by 3x−2y+6z=32.

1. Find the intersection of the line ℓ and the plane P. Write your answer as a point (a,b,c) where a , b , and c are numbers.
2. Find the cosine of the angle θ between the line ℓ and the normal vector of the plane P .
