plane 1: 2x-y-z-1=0

plane 2: 2x-y-z-4=0

- Math - distances between two planes -
**drwls**, Saturday, August 28, 2010 at 5:41pmFirst pick any point on the second plane. Let's choose

y=0, z=0,

2x = 4

x = 2

(2,0,0) is on plane 2.

Then use the formula for the distance between that point and Plane 1.

You can find that formula at
