Find the point P on the line y = 5x that is closest to the point (52,0). What is the least distance between P and (52,0)?

Let D be the distance between the two points. What is the objective function in terms of one number, x?

D =

Step 1

*Given:*

The equation of the line is y = 5x.

(52,0) is the closest point to the point P which line on the line y= 5x.

Step 2

*Calculation:*

Let P(x,5x) and the other point be (52,0).

Compute the distance between the points P(x,5x) and (52,0) as follows.

Step 3

Now, derivative the above obtained distance equation ...
