    Intersect of Surface and Line in 3D Space

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    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.
    THANKS!

    Hello,
    I appreciate your work in visualizing the plane and line in space and obtaining the approximate point of intersection.

    In the attached file, I have explained the complete procedure (substitution method, not matrix method)of obtaining the required point of intersection. I hope you can understand this.

    Well. The solutions can be obtained using a simple substitution method.

    I appreciate your work in getting ...

    Solution Summary
