parametric equations - alternative form

Could we have lines input as f(x)=g(y)=h(z) where f, g, h are explicit

e.g. (x+1)/3=y/4=z-2

saves having to convert to parameteric form and using

Curve((x+1)/3,y/4,z-2,t,<start value>,<end value>)

This is a commonly used format in English A-level

Thanks

Hi, you can use :

    IntersectPath[(x+1)/3=y/4,y/4=z-2]

Curve((x+1)/3,y/4,z-2,t,<start value>,<end value>)
????

Cheers.
