Word problem - Multivariable Calculus

Hey! so I'm taking Multivariable Calculus and I'm really confused about this problem...

Line A lies in the xy-plane and bisects its 1st and 3rd quadrants. Line B lies in the zx-plane and bisects its 1st and 3rd quadrants. Find the equation of the plane determined by these two lines.

Re: Word proble Multivaraible Cal.

Create expressions for lines A and B. Compute the cross product (of A and B) C. The plane you want is perpendicular to C and passes through the origin.
