(b) Find the perpendicular distance from the point ) 9 , 7 , 4 (- P to the line AB . Find also the foot of perpendicular. Solution Example The line joining two points ) 1 , 8 , 1 (- P and ) 2 , 4 , 4 (- Q meets the - xz and - yz planes respectively at R and S . Find the coordinates of R and S and the ratios in which they divide PQ . Solution Prepared by K. F. Ngai Page 3 Three Dimensional Co-ordinate Geometry Advanced Level Pure Mathematics Remark In above example (b), the distance from P to AB may also be found directly without calculating the foot of perpendicular. The method is outlined as follows: By referring to Figure, AB AP AB AP PR × = = θ sin Since Example By finding the foot of perpendicular from the point ) 13 , 1 , 10 (- P to the line, ) 5 (4 5 : j i t k i r L- + + = , find the equation of straight line passing through P and perpendicular to L , find the perpendicular distance from P to L .
