# Line in R3

hello

## Homework Statement

given a line in R3 and a distance d how do i find a line that skew with that line in that distance between them?

## The Attempt at a Solution

i tried to create a plane with the given line but it doesn't seem to work for me. cause too many assumptions have to be made
and the way i did it was really complicated in my opinion and not the right way to go

if you can help

in what form is the equation of line given?

basically, find any line perpendicular to the given line(let perpendicular be p and given line be l) and take a point at a distance d from l, on p. Then write the general equation of any line thorough this point..

How easy or tough it is to do this depends on the the form of the given equation...

I think there are infinite solutions.

Draw a cylinder with radius d across the line .
and you will see many lines going in different directions ... and touching the cylinder surface (tangent to the surface .. )_
