Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hi there, here is the well known formula for the distance of a point (x,y) from a line: \[Distance(ax+by+c=0,(x_{0}y _{0})):\] So in our case the point is (1,5) and the line is : 5x12y26=0 so directly putting values in the formula we get: \[distance=\frac{ \left 5x112x526 \right }{ \sqrt{(5^{2}+12^{2})} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Seems like you left but i will finish it off for you :D So we solve \[Distance=\frac{ \left 56026 \right }{ \sqrt{(169)} }\] 560=55 5526=81 sqrt 169=13 \[distance=\frac{ \left 81 \right }{ 13}=\frac{ 81 }{ 13 }\]
