Let L1 be the line passing through the

point P1(−10, 11, −2) with direction vector d1=[3, −3, −1]T, and let L2 be the line passing through the point P2(0, −2, −1) with direction vector d2=[3, −1, 1]T.

Find the shortest distance d between these two lines, and find a point Q1 on L1 and a point Q2 on L2 so that d(Q1,Q2) = d. Use the square root symbol '√' where needed to give an exact value for your answer.
