Question

Find the shortest distance between the lines whose vector equations are

`vecr = (1-t)hati + (t - 2)hatj + (3 -2t)hatk` and `vecr = (s+1)hati + (2s + 1)hatk`

Solution

The given lines are

Therefore, the shortest distance between the lines is `8/sqrt29` units.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
