## What is the foot of a perpendicular line?

The perpendicular foot, also called the foot of an altitude, is the point on the leg opposite a given vertex of a triangle at which the perpendicular passing through that vertex intersects the side. When a line is drawn from a point to a plane, its intersection with the plane is known as the foot. …

## What is the foot of the perpendicular from the point 2 3 on the line X Y 11 is equal to zero?

Thus (5, 6) are the required coordinates of the foot of the perpendicular.

**What is the foot of the perpendicular from the point 2 3?**

**How do you find the foot of perpendicular from a point to a line in 2d?**

If M(x2,y2) is the foot of a perpendicular drawn from P(x1,y1) on the line ax+by+c=0, then x2−x1a=y2−y1b=−(ax1+by1+c)a2+b2. This is given as a formula in my module without any explanation. I can understand the first equality since the product of the slopes of two perpendicular lines is −1.

### How do you find the foot of the perpendicular drawn from the point?

Let us derive the formula now. Let ax+by+c=0 be the equation of straight line and assume that a perpendicular is drawn from a point (p,q) to this line and let the corresponding foot of the perpendicular be (h,k). The slope of line ax+by+c=0 is –a/b.

### What is the foot of perpendicular from point (- 2 3 to the line 2x y 3 0?

The foot of the perpendicular from (-2, 3) to the line 2x -y 3 0 is 180.

**What is the formula to find foot of perpendicular?**

Let ax+by+c=0 be the equation of straight line and assume that a perpendicular is drawn from a point (p,q) to this line and let the corresponding foot of the perpendicular be (h,k). The slope of line ax+by+c=0 is –a/b. Tutors for Study Skills are also available if you need more help.

**What is the perpendicular distance from the point?**

In geometry, the perpendicular distance between two objects is the distance from one to the other, measured along a line that is perpendicular to one or both. Particular instances include: Distance from a point to a line, for the perpendicular distance from a point to a line in two-dimensional space.

#### How do you find the perpendicular distance of a line from the origin?

Perpendicular through origin. y = − A x + A m + B n B \displaystyle{y}=\frac{{-{A}{x}+{A}{m}+{B}{n}}}{{B}} y=B−Ax+Am+Bn.

#### What is “foot of a perpendicular”?

What is the “Foot of a Perpendicular”? Let ax+by+c=0 be a straight line. If a perpendicular line is drawn from any point on the plane to this straight line then the point of intersection of the given straight line and its perpendicular is called the foot of the corresponding perpendicular.

**How do you find the perpendicular distance of a line?**

We know that the perpendicular distance (d) of a line Ax + By+ C = 0 from a point (x 1, y 1) is given by d = |Ax 1 + By 1 + C|]/ √ (A 2 + B 2)

**How do you find the shortest distance between two points?**

The only possibility to get the shortest distance is to draw a perpendicular line segment on the line through the given point. This is because joining the point and line with more than one line provides us with a triangle.

## What is the distance between a point and a line?

The distance between a point and a line is the shortest distance between them. It is the minimum length required to move from the point to a point on the line. This distance of minimum length can be shown as a line segment perpendicular to the line. Consider a Line L, and a point X that does not lie on L, as shown below:
