1. Basically, ABCD is a parallegram and you know what A,B and C are, and have to work out D.

A: 2i, j, 3k
B: 3i-2j
C: i-j-2k

I know that AB is parallel to CD, but still can't seem to work it out (too many unknowns)?

Edit:

I have x-1= k
y+1= -3k
z+2= -3k
2. D: 0i, 2j, 1k
3. (Original post by Spriggs3)
D: 0i, 2j, 1k
How did you get to that?
4. WEll you know that AB and DC are parallel, so the difference in all coordinates between B and A will be the same as the difference in co-ordinates between C and D. So find the difference in coordinates (2i-3i=-i, j--2j=3j, 3k-0=3k), then add this to C (i-i=0i, -j+3j=2j, -2k+3k=k) to get D
