Question: 9 letamp be the line with equation ax by...

Question details

9. Let& be the line with equation ax + by - c and let P- (p,q) be a point in the Plane. The goal in this problem is to give a formula for the distance d from P to L. (Here d- PQl where Q is the point on l closest to P.) (a) Find a vector n which is normal to and of length d. (There are two such n, differing by a sign.) (b) Find the x, y coordinates of the points (x,y) P n. (c) Draw a picture showing why either P+n or P-n is on (d) Now show that
