Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distance=d=sqrt((1x)^2+(0(3x+2)^2) minimizing distance will give you same minimum if you minimize d^2 d^2=(1x)^2+(3x+2)^2 (d^2)'=..... you finish this i have to go

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could find the min value between the point (1,0) and (x,3x+2) using the distance formula and then set the derivative of the distance fomula to 0
