- TL;DR Summary
- Given the line L: x = (-3, 1) + t(1,-2) find all x on L that lie 2 units from (-3, 1).

Problem: Given the line L: x = (-3, 1) + t(1,-2) find all x on L that lie 2 units from (-3, 1).

I know the answer is (3 ± 2 / √5, -1 ± 4/√5) but I don't know where to start. I found that if t=2, x= (-5, 5) and the normal vector is (2, 1) but I am not sure if this information is useful or how to use it.
