Find the perpendicular distance from the point with coordinates [tex](1,3,2)[/tex] to the line whose equation is [tex]\frac{x-2}{3}=\frac{y-8}{4}=\frac{z+1}{-1}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

??

3. The attempt at a solution

Well can someone just tell me the basic outline of this question? From what i can gather to find the distance is to find the distance from the plane given to that point right?
