- Introduction of Distance of a Point from a Line
- Distance between two parallel lines
Find the equation of the line parallel to y-axis and drawn through the point of intersection of the lines x– 7y + 5 = 0 and 3x + y = 0.
If sum of the perpendicular distances of a variable point P (x, y) from the lines x + y – 5 = 0 and 3x – 2y+ 7 = 0 is always 10. Show that P must move on a line.
Find perpendicular distance from the origin to the line joining the points (cosΘ, sin Θ) and (cosΦ, sin Φ).
Find the direction in which a straight line must be drawn through the point (–1, 2) so that its point of intersection with the line x + y = 4 may be at a distance of 3 units from this point.
