## Homework Equations

[tex]d = \frac{\left | a x_1 + b y_1 + c z_1+d \right |}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2+c^2}}.[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

Why in my book says that, if d > 0 then the coordinate M is of opposite site of the plane (relative to the (0,0,0)), and if it is d < 0 it is on same site of the plane (relative to (0,0,0)) when d is always positive?
