\\Line\; \; y=x\\\; \; \; \\Curve=y^{2}=x-2

Find shortest distance

 

\\y^{2}=x-2\\\; \; \; \\2y.y{'}=1

y'=\frac{1}{2y}

the tangent at point P is parallel to x=y

So y'=1=\frac{1}{2y}

=y=\frac{1}{2}

putiing the value of y in curve

=\left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{2}=x-2\Rightarrow \frac{1}{4}=x-2

                                             x=\frac{1}{4}+2=\frac{9}{4}

\\P=\left ( \frac{9}{4},\frac{1}{2} \right )

Shortest distance between two parallel lines or perpendicular distance from P\; to\; x=y

=\left | \frac{\frac{9}{4}-\frac{1}{2}}{\sqrt{1^{2}+1^{2}}} \right |=\frac{\frac{7}{4}}{\sqrt{2}}=\frac{7}{4\sqrt{2}}
