# Find Distance From a Point to a Line - Calculator

An easy to use calculator to find the distance d between a line of the general form a**x** + b**y** + c = 0 and a point given by its coordinates P(x_{0},y_{0}).

The formula for the distance d is given by

d = |a·x_{0} + b·y_{0} + c| / √(a^{2} + b^{2})

## Use of the Distance From a Point to a Line Calculator

1 - Enter the coefficients a, b and c and the coordinate of the point and press "Calculate Distance".
