those are not parallel lines.
Sorry to bother you guys >__<
Find the following distances between the parallel lines
3x+2y=12 and 3x+12y= -14
The horizontal distance
THe vertical distance
The shortest distance
I dunno how to find these distances
OMG THANKS A MILLION! T___T I would've never survived w/o your help
Use the formula from the other post to compute the shortest distance (i.e perpendicular distance) or . To find the vertical distance, choose a point on each line that has the same x-coordinate (then use the formula ). Likewise, for the horizontal distance, choose a point on each line that has the same y-coordinate (then use the formula . Really, are the easiest choices.
