3-D Cube project

For this project, we were in groups of eight and we each had to indivdually construt a corner of the cube. My orginal equation was 3x+4y+2z=12. But then i had to plug in the variables i had for x,y,z. They were (-x,-y,z). When i plug that into the equation it becomes -3x-4y+2z=12. Then i have to find the intercepts for each variable to do that say solving for x y and z are equal to 0 and 12 is divided by -3 and the answer is -4. The intercepts i got were (-4,0,0), (0,-3,0), (0,0,6). Then i have to graph each point on my 3-D model and i have a finished section of the cube. To create the shape i used yarn and threaded it through my model.
