# 3  Find the Cartesian equation of the following planes:    (c)     $\overrightarrow{r}.\left [ \left ( s-2t \right )\widehat{i}+(3-t) \widehat{j}+(2s+t)\widehat{k}\right ]=15$

D Divya Prakash Singh

Given the equation of plane $\overrightarrow{r}.\left [ \left ( s-2t \right )\widehat{i}+(3-t) \widehat{j}+(2s+t)\widehat{k}\right ]=15$

So we have to find the Cartesian equation,

Any point $A (x,y,z)$ on this plane will satisfy the equation and its position vector given by,  $\vec{r}=x\widehat{i}+y\widehat{j}-z\widehat{k}$

Hence we have,

$(x\widehat{i}+y\widehat{j}+z\widehat{k}).\left [ \left ( s-2t \right )\widehat{i}+(3-t) \widehat{j}+(2s+t)\widehat{k}\right] =15$

Or,  $(s-2t)x+(3-t)y+(2s+t)z=15$

Therefore this is the required Cartesian equation of the plane.
