a) Can you think of a way to use the dot product here?

b) If two vectors are of equal magnitude, but opposite direction, their vector sum is 0. Why is this relevant?

c) We have the 3 equations:

$3\lambda + 3\mu + 1 = x$

$-\lambda + 2\mu - 1 = y$

$4\lambda - 2 = z$

By multiplying equations (1) and (2) by suitable integers, can you eliminate $\mu$? Then try to use that equation and equation 3 to eliminate $\lambda$.

d) Such a line should be parallel to $v$, right?

e) Think about what the direction vectors of such a plane have to be....
