Question

# The equation of the plane containing the line $$\cfrac { x+1 }{ -3 } =\cfrac { y-3 }{ 2 } =\cfrac { z+2 }{ 1 }$$ and the point $$(0,7,-7)$$ is

A
x+y+z=1
B
x+y+z=2
C
x+y+z=0
D
None of these

Solution

## The correct option is D $$x+y+z=0$$The equation of plane containing the line$$\cfrac { x+1 }{ -3 } =\cfrac { y-3 }{ 2 } =\cfrac { x+2 }{ 1 }$$$$a(x+1)+b(y-3)+c(z+2)=0......(i)$$where, $$-3a+2b+c=0....(ii)$$This passes through $$(0,7,-7)$$$$\therefore a+4b-5c=0....(iii)\quad$$From Eqs (ii) and (iii) we get$$\cfrac { a }{ -14 } =\cfrac { b }{ -14 } =\cfrac { c }{ -14 } \quad \Rightarrow \cfrac { a }{ 1 } =\cfrac { b }{ 1 } =\cfrac { c }{ 1 }$$Thus, the required plane is $$x+y+z=0$$Maths
