⇒ ⇒ ⇒ 13 units

### Question 6: Find the distance of point (3, 4, 4) from the point, where the line joining the points A(3, -4, -5) and B(2, -3, 1) intersects the 2x+y+z=7.

Solution:

Equation of line passing through A(3, -4, -5) and B(2, -3, 1) is given by ⇒ Let ⇒ Coordinates of any point on the line is given by We know, The intersection of line and plane lies on the plane, so,

⇒ ⇒ ⇒ Therefore, the coordinates of points is, putting (1, -2, 7)

Now, the distance between (3, 4, 4) and (1, -2, 7) is,

⇒ ⇒ = 7 units

### Question 7: Find the distance of point (1, -5, 9) from the plane x- y+ z=5 measured along the line x=y=z.

Solution:

Given, The equation of line is x=y=z, it can also be written as, , where (1, 1, 1) are direction ratios of the line.

Here we have to measure the distance along the line, the equation of line parallel to x=y=z have same direction ratios (1, 1, 1),

So, the equation of line passing through (1, -5, 9) and having direction ratios (1, 1, 1) is,

⇒ Let Coordinates of any point on the line is given by We know, The intersection of line and plane lies on the plane, so,

⇒ ⇒ Therefore, the coordinates of point is given by, putting = (-9, -15, -1)

Now, distance between the points (1, -5, 9) and (-9, -15, -1) is,

⇒ ⇒ units.
