Let L be the line with parametric equations
x = −2+3t
y = −4−2t
z = −4+3t
Find the shortest distance d from the point P0=(5, −1, 3) to L, and the point Q on L that is closest to P0.

you're kidding? this is a calculus problem...
I'm sorry, I don't know how to help you then.
okay thanks anyways
The only way I know how to do this involves derivatives. From a quick google, that appears to be the way of choice for most
oh but this isn't calculus
although, a different approach is taken in the comments here http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/1020562/distance-between-point-and-line-and-between-line-and-plane
there apparently is a vector approach
thanks im going to take a look rn
i'm still not sure how i should start
oh, here ya go. LA solution, I apologize my LA sucks, so I won't be help but try @zepdrix . He may have some ideas: http://math.mit.edu/~gs/linearalgebra/ila0403.pdf
Are yuo still there?
Here's a link that solves a similar problem as yours. If you need further help, just post/tag me, or @FibonacciChick666.
oh hey i ended up figuring it out, but i have another question
I suggest you post a new question and tag someone if you wish. However, there are always others interested online.
