Quick Reference

Let and be directed line-segments representing non-zero, non-parallel vectors a and b. A vector p is coplanar with a and b if p can be represented by a directed line-segment , where P lies in the plane determined by O, A and B. The vector p is coplanar with a and b if and only if there exist scalars λ and μ such that pa+μb.
