# [Math]Plane equation given 3 points

keywords: Math, Plane equation given 3 points

Here's one way to get the requisite plane:

- Get two different vectors which are in the plane, such as \(B−A=(3,0,−3)\) and \(C−A=(3,3,3)\).
- Compute the cross product of the two obtained vectors: \((B−A)×(C−A)=(9,−18,9)\). This is the normal vector of the plane, so we can divide it by 9 and get \((1,−2,1)\).
- The equation of the plane is thus \(x−2y+z+k=0\). To get k, substitute any point and solve; we get \(k=−6\).

The final equation of the plane is \(x−2y+z−6=0\).
