Hint: Use the distance formula for lines

\[\large d=\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}\]

That is for points

It's just a formula bro. It's nothing to get overly eager and excited about.

ok the question is the distance is 4/5. true or false?

And I should say that this is specifically the formula for the distance between two PARALLEL lines.

8/10 = 4/5
correct

(x,y) = (.5,0) is a point on the first given line. So use a = 6, b = -8, c = 5 for the other one.

If the lines are not parallel, then the distance between them would not be consistent.

That formula I gave you (as I stated previously) is for PARALLEL lines only

hmm but it is answerable

Well, actually, what you just posted are two parallel lines.

y = -x + 1 and y = -x + 6
