Homework subject

Hi! I didn't understand my maths lesson about planes, how to find the equation of a plane please? 

Homework progress

All I know is that a plane is a flat 2D surface. But then I didn't understand the rest of the explanation my teacher told us.

Well, you can define a plane with a Cartesian equation in three coordinates, normally x, y and z (or you can also use a vector equation).

The Cartesian equation of a plane will be in the form ax + by + cz + d = 0.

Also know that a normal to a plane is a line or vector which is perpendicular to the plane, so it meets the plane at a right angle.
