# Find the distance of the point (2, 4, –1) from the line 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,  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   units
