Question: Find if the planes are parallel, perpendicular or neither. If they are not parallel then find the equation for the line of intersection.
z = x = y , 2x - 5y -z = 1
Verify that your answer is indeed a line of intersection.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com May 24, 2023, 1:00 pm ad1c9bdddf
The equation z=x=y gives a line (being the intersection of the planes z=x and x=y; as you probably now, if we denote by t=x=y=z, this line can be described as x=t, y=t, z=t in parametric form)
The second equation describes a plane...but as the first is only a line, the problem does not make sense ...
