1. (a) Find two unit vectors orthogonal to both h0, 1, 2i and h1, −1, −2i.
Solution: The cross product of the vectors is orthogonal to both of them.
h0, 1, 2i × h1, −1, 2i = h0, 2, −1i

The unit vector in this direction is 0, 5 , − 5 . To get two unit vectors, we’ll
use this vector and the one in the opposite direction,

(b) Use part of your work from (a) to find an equation for the line of intersection
of the planes y + 2z = 1 and x = 1 + y + 2z.
Solution: We find a point in the line by inspection. One possible point is
r0 = h2, 1, 0i. We find a direction vector by finding a vector orthogonal to both
normal vectors.
v = h0, 1, 2i × h1, −1, 2i = h0, 2, −1i
The line equation is
r = h2, 1, 0i + th0, 2, −1i.
2. Are the following lines parallel, skew, or intersecting?
Line 1: x = 4t, y = 2 − 4t, z = 6t + 5
Line 2: x = −6s, y = 6s + 3, z = 2 − 9s
Solution: Their directions vectors are scalar multiples, so they are parallel.
