Expert Answer:

To find the distance between two planes, use the formula:



This is the formula for the distance between a point (x0,y0,z0) and a plane (ax+by+cz+d =0). To find the distance between the planes, choose an arbitrary point on one of the planes. Set y=z=0 and solve for x in one of the equations and then substitute (x,0,0) instead of (x0,y0,z0) in the second equation and solve the above formula.
