(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

On the straight line x+y-8=0 find point on equal distance of the point M(2,8) and equal distance of x-3y+2=0

2. Relevant equations

[tex]d=\frac{|Ax + By + C|}{|\sqrt{A^2+B^2}|}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

Should I first find d (distance) from M(2,8) and x+y-8=0?
