Given 2 points P1,P2 on a straight line and a 3rd point, determine the distance of the 3rd point to the straight line. Your answer should have an accuracy of 1e-6.
Hint: create a parameter representation of the (very...) long line.
Dear all, it seems that I've made mistake with the usage of roundn and secondly roundn is behaving strangely: roundn(sqrt(2)*0.5,6) results in: 7.071069999999999e-01
I will modify the testcases.
And of course my apologies for any headaches that my mistake may have caused.
