The distance from a line to a point can be found from the equation of the line and the coordinates of the We shall derive a formula for this purpose. We observe first that point. the distance from a vertical line to a point is immediately obtainable by taking the difference of the abscissa of the point and the z-intercept of the line. Hence no additional formula is needed for this case. Let the equation of a slant line be written in the form Ax + By + C = and (1) Q, be any point not on the line.

The collection of lines defined by a linear equation with one parameter is called a family, or system, of lines. For example, if m = 3, the point-slope equation becomes allowed to vary. tion y = 3z + b. This equation represents the family of lines of slope 3, one line for each value of b. There are, of course, infinitely many lines in the family. In family passes through each point of the coordinate plane. Figure 3-3 shows a few lines of the family corresponding to the indicated values of the parameter b.
