# Find the distance from (4, −2, 6) to each of the following.(a) The xy-plane(b) The yz-plane(c) The xz-plane(d) The x-axis(e) The y-axis(f) The z-axis

(a)

To determine

To find: The distance from the point (4,2,6) to the xy-plane.

Explanation

The distance from any point to the xy-plane is the absolute value of the z-coordinate of the point.
