Finding equations of two planes given the equation of the intersection line between them.

I have been given the the equation of an intersection line between two planes as g:x = (3x+1y+0z) + k(0x-2y-6z).I'm supposed to find the equation of the planes from this but i have no clue on how to go about it. I can get the equation of an intersection line given two planes but the other way round seems to be a problem to me. Thank you in advance.

As with point, there are infinitely many planes that intersect into that line. You need more information to determine the planes. For example, if you know a point from each plane, you may be able to do it.
