    I think [0 1 0] and [0 0 1] are orthogonal to the vector normal to the plane if you from the cross product, you get [1 0 0]= N (the normal vector) N dot [x y z] = constant is (almost) in the form of a scalar equation (a x + b y +c z= d) N dot with any point on the plane (5 4 -7 is a good choice) gives the constant: N dot [5 4 7]= 5 so that is the equation: [1 0 0] dot [x y z] =5 that simplifies to x = 5 as the scalar form
