# Distance of the point (α, β, γ) from y-axis is

A. β

B. |β|

C. |β| + |γ|

D.

Answer :

_{If we draw a perpendicular from (α, β, γ) to y-axis, the foot of the perpendicular will have the coordinates (0, β, 0)}

_{Also, by distance formula, we have distance between two points}

_{A(x}_{1}, y_{1}, z_{1}) and B(x_{2}, y_{2}, z_{2}) is

⇒ Required distance
