Points A, B, C, and T are in space such that each of \(\overline{TA}\)\(\overline{TB}\), and \(\overline{TC}\) is perpendicular to the other two. If TA = TB = 12 and TC = 6,then what is the distance from T to face ABC?

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks a lot!

I have not  worked this out

BUT

you can think of A,B and C being on an xyz space such that 

A(12,0,0)    B(0,0,12)     and    C(0,6,0)

 

and T os the origin (0,0,0)

 

Then I'd try doing what this video teaches.

Thanks for the help, but I'm still having trouble solving for the answer. I don't really understand the video.
