comment Determining if a line is orthogonal to a plane
@Arturo any idea about the parametrization of the plane?

and what about for finding the parametrization of the plane?

So it'd be $<2,3,5>X<-4,-12,18>$?

Oh well I already knew the normal vector of the plane, $<2,3,5>$, and now the normal vector of the line (if I can call it that) is just $<1,0,2>$?

Sorry I wasnt sure what to tag this at all, so I chose calculus. Please fix as needed.

comment Question on Quadric Surfaces
And so when I'm graphing this by hand and for the first step where I set z=k, do I just plot that as a one dimensional ellipse? How do I plot that part? How do I treat the $k^2/4$?

comment Determining don't-care values in a Karnaugh Map
Ok but so for the given function I have above, when I use a K map, I get a final result of $abc'+bc'd+a'bc$ whereas I know its supposed to actually be $bc' +a'b$. In the Kmap, there are a total of 3 rectangles: 3rd row first 2 columns, 2nd column middle 2 rows, and 2nd row last 2 columns. Am I missing any tricks or something?
