$$ x= 3.$$

Work Step by Step

Since $ n=\langle 1,0,0 \rangle $ and $(x_{0},y_{0},z_{0})=(3,1,-9)$ then the equation of the plane in scalar form is $ a(x-x_{0})+b(y-y_{0})+c(z-z_{0})=0$ That is, $$(x-3)+0(y-1)+0(z+9)=0$$ and simplifying it, we get $$ x=3$$ Hence the equation is given by $$ x= 3.$$
