Find the distance

Answer :

Given: - Point P(2, 4, – 1) and equation of line

Let, Q be a point through which line passes

Thus from given equation of line coordinates of Q is

Q( – 5, – 3,6)

As we know line equation with direction ratio of given line is parallel to given line.

Hence Line is parallel to


Now let's find cross product of this two vectors

The magnitude of this cross product

And Magnitude of

Thus distance of point from line is
