1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the distance between the line x=3t-1, y=2-t, z=t and the point (2,0,-5) 2. Relevant equations 3. 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??
