How do you find the equation of each trace for: -20x+10y+50z = 100? (I've already found x-intercept= -5, y-int =10, & z-int=2.)
Given equation of plane is
To find the equation of each trace, substitute z=0, y=0, and x=0 in (i). Thus we will get three equations i.e.
These are equation of line in respectively xy-plane, xz-plane, and yz-plane.
