    [SOLVED] Distance between Parallel Planes

    ok, so we have, say:

    0 = a + b + c
    and
    0 = e + d + f

    And they're parallel because I said so.

    How would I go about finding the distance between them?

    It seems that you have written total nonsense.
    Please check the exact statement of the problem.
    As it is, it means nothing.

    oops: the variables stay the same!

    I notice that now.

    Okay, how about:

    ax + by + cz = 5

    ex + dy + cz = 25

    And they are parallel (ASSUMPTION). What formula, what method, would I use to find the distance between these planes?
