Expert Answer:

The given line is

            4 (x + 5) = 7 (2y - 3)

        4x + 20 = 14y - 21

        4x - 14y + 20 + 21 = 0

        4x - 14y + 41 = 0
The perpendicular distance from (x1, y1) to the line ax + by + c = 0 is

.

The point (x1, y1) is (2, 5).

Perpendicular distance from (2, 5) to the line 4x - 14y + 41 = 0 is
