# Switching a non parametric equation to a parametric equation of a plane

More than the result (that I already have printed in my book), I'd be interested in the procedure to switch from a non parametric to a parametric equation of a plane in the Euclidean space. Here is the exercise:

Find parametric equations describing the plane $$x_1 - 2x_2 +3x_3 = 6.$$

Thanks.

The easiest way to parametrize is if you can write one variable in terms of the other two; in our case, we can write $x_1 = 6+2x_2 -3x_3$. Therefore, using the parameters $s$ and $t$ for our parametrization, we can write $$x_1 = 6+2s -3t,$$ $$x_2 = s,$$ $$x_3 = t.$$
