IB Mathematics SL – Vectors, parametric form of a line


How can we find the parametric form of the equations of the line passing through the point (2,7) and is parallel to the vector ?



Thanks
Jack

IB Mathematics HL – Vectors, parametric form


The Parametric form for the equation of a straight line is :





where is a position vector (a point on the line)

and is a direction vector ( a vector parallel to the line)

is a real number parameter.


Therefore about your question we have that the parametric equation form is








Hope these help! :D :D
