    Distance between two parallel line is given by the algorithm \[\left| c1-c2\div \sqrt{a ^{2}+ b ^{2}} \right|\]

    your most welcome... and remember since both the lines are parallel the value of a and b in both the equation will always be the SAME!!!

    c1 is the constant of the first equation and c2 s the constant of second equation.. since your using modulus,i.e,absolute value of it.. IT doesn't matter which equation you choose as first or second..
