Find the distance between parallel lines l (x + y) + p = 0 and l (x + y) – r = 0
It is known that the distance (d) between parallel lines Ax + By + C1 = 0 and Ax + By + C2 = 0 is
The given parallel lines are l (x + y) + p = 0 and l (x + y) – r = 0.
lx + ly + p = 0 and lx + ly – r = 0
Here, A = l, B = l, C1 = p, and C2 = –r.
Therefore, the distance between the parallel lines is
