## What is plane?

A plane is a surface such that, if two points are taken on it, a straight line joining them lies wholly in the surface.The coefficient of x, y and z in the cartesian equation of a plane are the direction ratios of normal to the plane. NOTE : Please consider distance as positive or 0 in all cases.
