comment How do I know what to substitute to simplify a limit?
This is strange, I thought I could only do that if $t$ approaches infinity. I could have divided the exponents in the original form without substitution and the answer is indeed $2/3$ but I thought it was the wrong method.

I really like the way you approach it, always nice to see things from a more focused perspective.

Yeah that clarifies things greatly, I realized that a more rectangle looking shape would make a non-perpendicular.

Thanks for confirming, the question is probably not the same as this is from my memory.

comment How can I determine the values of a third point to make all 3 collinear in $\mathbb{R}^3$
Thanks, I did add the point and was checking it but with no clue what I was doing, but I can figure out why it works soon thanks to your explanation and example. Thank you!

I think this is a good answer, but I am lacking so much basic knowledge that it is hard to understand exactly what I am doing. My instinct tells me based on what you say that $3 + t(-2) = 2$ so $t = 1/2$ and $(1/2, 1, -1)$ satisfies the equation?

Hm that is interesting, and it confirms my answer when I use the k, that really helps too. It is truly discomforting that my brain does all that without informing me how it was done.. Many thanks!
