    3D math

    I got this project I been working on for awhile but ran into a problem i just cant seem to solve. I'm trying to figure out a formula to get the distance from work point to tangent. Once you figure out one the rest should just be a result int. I have put the numbers that will affect the answer with the only constant being 3.00. The others will change depending on what is needed. I have attached a picture to better described what I'm saying. Thanks.

    And what is the problem statement?

    What do you need to find? Are those S1, S2. What is the information given?

    Regards.

    The bend radius is going to be 3.50. The distance between the S2 point and the S1 point is 9.00 on the X axis. And the distance between S1 point and S3 point is 3.75 on the Z axis. and Yes I'm trying to figure out the S1, S2, & S3.
