Find the distance from the point (3, -4, 2) to the

a. xy-plane

b. yz-plane 



Expert Answer

Step 1

a) Distance of (3, -4, 2) from xy plane:

On xy plane , z=0. 

So, This point is 2 units away from the z=0. Because it has z=2

Answer: 2

Step 2

b) Distance of (3, -4, 2) from yz plane:

On yz plane , x=0. 

So, This point...
