Find the point on the line 3x + 4y = 5 that is closest to the origin.  I tried solving this, but I couldn't.

Formula for distance from a point to a line :

3x+4y-5 = 0   (your line)       point (0, 0 )  means  x1=0   y1=0

 

a = 3   b = 4   c = -5

 

d=|ax1+by1+c| / sqrt(a2+b2)                    thry this ....let us know what you find !
