Intersect of Surface and Line in 3D Space

Attached, find a graphic of a Plane and a Line.
I'm hoping the solution can be conveyed without Matrix math, and am thinking it ought to be solvable using 'conventional' simutaneous equations (which I almost 'get').
Too, I'm hoping the solution will be fairly 'general', in the sense that, after understanding this first effort, that I will be able to apply it to a more complex surface.
