a. Is it possible for this line to intersect just one coordinate axis? exactly two? all three? none at all?

b. Is it possible for this line to intersect just one coordinate plane? exactly two? all three? none at all?

Q1

Find a vector equation of the line

that passes through the points \displaystyle (3,9)  and \displaystyle (-4,2)

Q2a

Find a vector equation of the line

that passes through the point \displaystyle (-5,-3)  and is parallel to the line \displaystyle \vec{r}=(4,0)+t(0,5)

Q2b

Find a vector equation of the line

that is perpendicular to the line \displaystyle 2 x-5 y-6=0  and passes through the point \displaystyle (0,-3)

Q2c

Determine if the following pairs of lines are parallel and distinct, coincident, perpendicular, or none of these.

\displaystyle (x, y, z)=(1,7,2)+t(-1,-1,1)  and \displaystyle (x, y, z)=(-3,0,1)+u(2,-2,-2)
