Question

Find the distance of the point (2, 3) from the line 2x – 3y + 9 = 0 measured along the line 2x – 2y + 5 = 0.

Solution

Correct option is

 

Since slope of the line 2x – 2y + 5 = 0 is 1, its makes an angle π/4 with positive direction of x-axis. 

The equation of the line through (2, 3) and making an angle π/4 in parametric from

         

Coordinates of any points o this line are  

         

This point lies on the line 2x – 3y + 9 = 0
