# Question: the distance d of a point p to the line...

###### Question details

The distance d of a point P to the line through points A and B is the length of the component of AP¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ that is orthogonal to AB¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯, as indicated in the diagram. |

So the distance from P=(1,−4,−2) to the line through the points A=(−3,−2,−2) and B=(−2,−5,4) is
