Let P=(2,0,0) Q=(0,4,0) and R=(0,0,2)
First, find a normal vector n
\(n=\vec{PQ}\cdot\vec{PR}\)
Therefore,
\(\vec{PQ}=(0,4,0)-(2,0,0)=(-2,4,0)\)
\(\vec{PR}=(0,0,2)-(2,0,0)=(-2,0,2)\)
\(n=\vec{PQ}\cdot\vec{PR}=\begin{bmatrix}i&j&k\\-2&4&0\\-2&0&2\end{bmatrix}\)
\(n=\begin{bmatrix}4&0\\0&2\end{bmatrix}i-\begin{bmatrix}-2&0\\-2&2\end{bmatrix}j+\begin{bmatrix}-2&4\\-2&0\end{bmatrix}k\)
\(n=(8-0)i-(-4+0)j+(0+8)k\)
\(n=8i+4j+8k\)
\(n=(8,4,8)\)
We have the equation 8x+4y+8z=d
Now choose any one of the three points, using P=(2,0,0)
\(d=n\cdot\vec{OP}\)
\(d=(8,4,8)\cdot(2,0,0)\)
d=16
d=1
Therefore
8x+4y+8z=16
2x+y+2z=4
Results
2x+y+2z=4
0
