    Default that feeling

    I know for a fact that this one question is going to be on my calc final tomorrow, he was on one of the tests and on Monday he basically said we are going to have this problem.

    And here I am, having read most of the fucking book, and I still don't comprehend how to fucking do it.

    Its how to find the equation of a plane that passes through 2 points, and is perpendicular to this other plane.

    Everything I do fails.

    fuck it, if I can't get it now with the book right in front of me, I sure as hell can't get it on the test

    uh I just remembered, he is also going to have a trighyperbolic question on the test

    so basically, whatever those other questions on the test are, I HAVE to do

    well 2 vectors define a plane right. so one vector is point 1 to point 2. and if it is perpendicular to some given plane then you know a vector parallel to that plane's normal vector is going to lie in the plane you want to find. i havent done vector/plane stuff in a while and dont want to take the time to think too hard about the calculations but that should be able to get you somewhere no? vector 1 = point 1 to point 2 and vector 2 = a vector parallel to the given plane's normal vector originating from point 1.

    yeah its the calculations that are getting me, whatever I am doing ain't working, and its not in the maths, its in the method

    Here is an example of one

    The place passes through the points (2,2,1) and (-1,1,-1) and is perpendicular to the plane 2x-3y+z=3. Fine the equation of the plane.

    The answer is 7x+y-11z=5

    yeah, hence I made the card

    I also have one for statistics

    don't worry about the question, I already took the test, it didn't have one like that (although similar)

    I am feeling OK. I had to one one problem I wasn't sure if I was doing right, and I had to skip one because I kind of ran out of time / didn't know how to do 3 of them (hence 1 skipped as I could omit 2).

    Overall, I am not feeling that bad though.
