a. (14√29)/29

b. 0

c. (-16√29)/29

d. (16√29)/29

I got C but would it be positive, like D?

**Reiny**, Monday, June 1, 2009 at 11:01pmYou are finding distance, so it would be the absolute value, namely D

Are you using the method

for a point (p,q) to the line Ax + By + C = 0

distance = │Ap + Bq + C│/√(A^2+B^2) ?
