# Find the Vector Equation of the Plane with Intercepts 3, –4 and 2 on X, Y and Z-axis Respectively. - CBSE (Science) Class 12 - Mathematics

ConceptVector and Cartesian Equation of a Plane

#### Question

Find the vector equation of the plane with intercepts 3, –4 and 2 on x, y and z-axis respectively.

#### Solution

It is given that,
Intercepts are a = 3, b = −4, c = 2
The intercept form of a plane is as follows:

x/a+y/b+z/c=1

therefore x/3+y/-4+z/2=1

The equation of the given plane is
4x − 3y + 6z = 12.

(xhati+yhatj+zhatk).(4hati-3hatj+6hatk)=12

vec r.(4 hati-3hatj+6hatk)=12

This is the vector form of the equation of the given plane.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
