Hello there, If I have two vectors lying on a finite plane, and a point normal from that plane: How do I get the distance from a point to that plane, ie, the distance at right angles to the plane. Thanks in advance

Use the plane''s normal vector equation to solve for with your point values. Then get the length of the normal vector and that''s your distance.
