lines 4x-3y+5=0 and 8x-6y+7 =0 are parallel lines with slope 4/3 as shown in figure.
Point of intersection of both lines with y-axis is obtained by substituting x=0 in the equations.
Points of intersection A (0, 5/3) and B(0,7/6) are shown in figure.
Perpendiculr line to both the lines is in the form 3x+4y = k . This perpendicular line passes through A(0, 5/3)
by substituting values for x and y in the equation we get k = 20/3
point of intersection is obtained by solving the equations 8x-6y+7=0 and 3x+4y = (20/3)
we get point of intersection as C ( 0.24, 1.5)
distance between the lines =
