## Homework Statement

Find the distance between the line x=3t-1, y=2-t, z=t and the point (2,0,-5)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I'm assuming I need to use the formula D=[ax+by+cz+d]/root(a^2+b^2+c^2) and I'm guessing I need to use (3,-1,1), extracted from the parametric line equation as the parallel vector, and possibly also the point (-1,2,0), extracted from the same. But not sure how to proceed??
