# The perpendicular distance of the point P(6, 7, 8) from xy-plane is

A. 8

B. 7

C. 6

D. 10

Answer :

**Given:** Points P(6, 7, 8)

**To find:** the perpendicular distance of the point P from xy-plane

As we know z = 0 in xy-plane.

The shortest distance of the plane will be the z-coordinate of the point

Hence, **the distance of point P from xy-plane is 8 units**

Rate this question :

What is the locus of a point for which y = 0, z = 0?
