Find the equation of a line whose perpendicular distance from the origin is 6 units and the angle made by the perpendicular with positive x-axis is 60°.

Let the equation of line is x cos q + y sin q = p where line is at a distance p from the origin and the angle made by perpendicular with positive direction of x-axis is q.

Here p = 6 units, q = 60°
Therefore equation of line x cos 60° + y sin 60° = 6
