Sat, 20 Feb 2021 00:00:00 +0000https://chrisried.xyz/posts/2021-02-20-minimum-distance-point-line/This has been transcribed from an earlier post of the internet. I felt as though it might be good to rewrite and also include some of the information that is part of the
This note describes the technique and gives the solution to finding the shortest distance from a point to a line or line segment. The equation of a line defined through two points \(P_1\) \((x1,y1)\) and \(P_2\) \((x2,y2)\) is
