    Matlab 7.0 vectors

    Ok i have been given v(a,b)=[6;0;0]+a[-2;1;0]+b[-1;0;1] and that a point p=(8,2,0)

    The vectors are all column vectors.

    I need to find both the normal vector, and the shortest distance from p to the plane.

    This is at least the third time this or a very similar question has been asked here. See http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-distance.html.
