$\text{Determine the smallest distance between point}$

$$P(1,1,1)$$

$\textsf{ and the line $L$ through the origin $L$ has the direction}$

$$\langle -4,-5,8 \rangle$$

ok just barely had time to post this

but was ?? about direction

presume going off of this

$\textit{Distance between point and line }$

$\textit{ Where A,B, and C are coeficients of line equation And M, N are coordinates of a point}$

\begin{align*}\displaystyle

d&=\frac{|Am+Bn+C|}{\sqrt{A^2+B^2}}

\end{align*}
