Solution:
Given points are (2, 3, 4), (-1, 4, 5) and (8, 1, 2) Equation of the line joining of the first and second point is
$$\frac{x-2}{-3}=\frac{y-3}{1}=\frac{z-4}{1}$$ = m (say)
(-3m + 2, m + 3, m + 4)
On putting m = -2, we get the third point is (8, 1, 2)
∴ Given points are collinear.

Question 1.
Find the vector and cartesian equations of the straight line passing through the point A with position vector $$3 \vec{i}-\vec{j}+4 \vec{k}$$ and parallel to the vector $$-5 \vec{i}+7 \vec{j}+3 \vec{k}$$.
