Notice

On August 21 I am planning to perform a major update to the site. I can't give a specific time in which the update will happen other than probably sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. (Central Time, USA). There is a very small chance that a prior commitment will interfere with this and if so the update will be rescheduled for a later date.

I have spent the better part of the last year or so rebuilding the site from the ground up and the result should (hopefully) lead to quicker load times for the pages and for a better experience on mobile platforms. For the most part the update should be seamless for you with a couple of potential exceptions. I have tried to set things up so that there should be next to no down time on the site. However, if you are the site right as the update happens there is a small possibility that you will get a "server not found" type of error for a few seconds before the new site starts being served. In addition, the first couple of pages will take some time to load as the site comes online. Page load time should decrease significantly once things get up and running however.

For problems 1  4 give the equation of the line in vector form, parametric form and symmetric form.

 

1. The line through the points  and .  

 

2. The line through the point  and parallel to the line given by .

 

3. The line through the point  and parallel to the line given by , , .

 

4. The line through the point  and orthogonal to both  and .

 

For problems 5  7 determine if the two lines are parallel, orthogonal or neither. 

 

5. The line given by  and the line given by .

 

6. The line through the points  and  and the line given by , , .

 

7. The line given by , ,   and the line given by .

 

For problems 8  10 determine the intersection point of the two lines or show that they do not intersect.

 

8. The line passing through the points  and  and the line given by .

 

9. The line given by , ,   and the line given by , ,

 

10. The line given by  and the line given by .

 

11. Does the line passing through  and  intersect the yz-plane?  If so, give the point.

 

12. Does the line given by  intersect the xz-plane?  If so, give the point.

 

13. Which of the three coordinate planes does the line given by , ,  intersect?
