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

The distance of point X (k,2) from the line y=x+4 is four.

Find the values of k.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

(y-2)/(x-k)=-1

y=-x+k+2

I think this gives me the equation of the line from the point to the line y=x+4, but not sure what to do next or if I'm correct.
