Q. 2

# Show that the points and are equidistant from the plane

Answer :

Given:

* Points given by the equation: ;

* Plane given by the equation: , where the normal vector is:

We know, the distance of from the plane is given by:

⟹ Distance of from the plane

= units

And,

⟹ Distance of from the plane

= units

∴ the points and are equidistant from the plane .
