Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In Exercises 37 and 38, find the distance between the parallel planes. 37. 2x + y  2z = 0 and 2x + y  2z = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess i need that creepy formula: "In the case where the line £ is in IR2 and its equation has the general form ax + by = c, the distance d(B, €) from B = (x0, y0) is given by the formula"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[d(\beta,\iota) = \frac{ a x_{0} + b y_{0}+ c }{\sqrt{a ^{2}+b ^{2}} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no, they don't give anything. But i guess it would be something like:dw:1443017717632:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In general, the distance d(B, <JP) from the point B = (x0, y0, z0) to the plane whose general equation is ax + by + cz = d is given by the formula: \[d(\beta, Plane) = \frac{ ax _{0}+ by _{0}+ c z _{0}  d }{ \sqrt{a ^{2}+b ^{2}+c ^{2}} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first you must find a point that lies on one of the planes for the first equation x = y = z = 0 so there is the point (0,0,0) on that plane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what if use a point of the other plane should i get the same answer ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes I've never come across this formula before but i dont see why not Its easy to use (0,0,0) though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the numerator will be 5 and plug in a = 2 , b = 1 and c = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok it seems easy... could you help me with this one: Find the normal form of the equation of the plane that passes through P = (O,  2, 5 ) and is parallel to the plane with general equation 6x  y + 2z = 3 .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'd have to look all that stuff up I'm afraid but i haven't got the time at the moment.
