Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone tell me if what I am doing is correct. I am trying to solve this equation of 0 = n ( p - p0 ) where n, p, and p0 are points on the plane. Assume this is a 2D dimension (x,y). Is this the correct way of calculating this equation.

0 = nx (px - p0x) + ny (py + p0y)

Purpose: I am trying to find if point p resides on the positive or negative side of the plane.

Only help if you know the answer please.

Thanks
