# Math Help - Distance between two parallel lines?

1. ## Distance between two parallel lines?

hey i need help with finding the distance between
(x-3)/0 = (y+3)/2 = (z+8) / -1
and
x/0 = (y+1) /2 = (z+2) /-1

theyre parallel lines and its sorta left me confused..so help?
Thanks

Pick a convenient point lying on one of the lines. Find the distance of the other line from that point.
