Hi everyone, i have a midterm exam coming up and i'm looking at problems in the section of the book to help myself prepare. Can anyone answer this question for me? I have attempted to answer this problem but without the answer i don't know if i'm right.

Find the distance between the point P(1,-2,4) and the line given by the parametric equations:

x= 2t

y= t-3

z= 2t+2

I tried using the techniques given in the book but it's not for a point and line.

Can someone do this one out for me? It's not a homework, i just need to see it done out step by step so i can follow it, along with the answer.

Thank you guys, really desperate...
