Unformatted text preview: P = (1 , 2 , 3) and the line x = 82 t , y =5 + t , z =4 + 3 t ; A) Find the distance between P and an arbitrary point on the line, in terms of the parameter t . B) Find the value of t that minimizes the distance function above (Hint: minimize d 2 ). C) Find the point on the line that is closest to P . D) Use (C) to ﬁnd the distance the point (1, 2, 3) is to the line r ( t ) = h 82 t,5 + t,4 + 3 t i...
