# 17     Find the shortest distance between the lines whose vector equations are                and

Given two equations of the line

in the vector form.

So, we will apply the distance formula  for knowing the distance between two lines    and

After comparing the given equations, we obtain

Then calculating the determinant value numerator.

That implies,

Now, after substituting the value in the above formula we get,

Therefore, units are the shortest distance between the two given lines.
