Since (1) is perpendicular to 3x + 2y + 3z = 5, a + 2b + 3c = 0
Since (1) is perpendicular to 3x + 3y + z = 0
3a + 3b + c = 0
Using (2) and (3) we have;
$$\frac{a}{2-9}=\frac{-b}{1-9}=\frac{c}{3-6} \Rightarrow \frac{a}{-7}=\frac{b}{8}=\frac{c}{-3}$$
(1) = -7x + 8y – 3z + d = 0
Since (1) passes through (-1, 3, 2) we have;

putting the values of x, y, z in (1) is
2(3λ + 1) – 3(λ + 2) – (2λ + 3) + 2 = 0
7λ + 7 = 0 ⇒ λ = -1
∴ Point of intersection is x = -3 + 1 = -2; y= -1 + 2 = 1, z= -2 + 3 = 1
