Given the line makes equal angle with the coordinate axes .

$\therefore\:d.c. $ of the line = $(\large\frac{1}{\sqrt 3},\frac{1}{\sqrt 3},\frac{1}{\sqrt 3})$

$\Rightarrow\:d.r$ of the line is $(1,1,1)$

The line passes through $P(2,-1,2)$

$\therefore$ The eqn. of the line is $\large\frac{x-2}{1}=\frac{y+1}{1}=\frac{z-2}{1}$$=\lambda$

$\Rightarrow\:$ Any point on the line say $Q$ is $(\lambda+2,\lambda-1,\lambda+2)$

Let this point be the point where the line cuts the plane $2x+y+z-9=0$

$\Rightarrow\:Q$ satisfies the eqn. of the plane.

$\Rightarrow\:2(\lambda+2)+(\lambda-1)+(\lambda+2)-9=0$

$\Rightarrow\:4\lambda-4=0\:\:or\:\:\lambda=1$

$\therefore\:Q(3,0,3)$ and $PQ=\sqrt {1+1+1}=\sqrt 3$
