Find the distance between parallel lines

l(x + y) + p = 0 and l (x + y) – r = 0.

Answer :

Given parallel lines are l (x + y) + p = 0 and l (x + y) – r = 0.


lx + ly + p = 0 and lx + ly – r = 0


Distance (d) between parallel lines Ax + By + C1 = 0 and Ax + By + C2 = 0 is given by

Equating the lines given by the general form we get,

Here A = l, B = l, C1 = p, C2 = -r


Distance between parallel lines is
