Find the distance between the lines $3x-4y+2=0$ & $3x-4y+10=0$?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\large\frac{8}{3}&(b)\;\large\frac{8}{5}\\(c)\;\large\frac{6}{5}&(d)\;\large\frac{4}{5}\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

Distance between the parallel lines is the perpendicular distance of any point on one line from the other line.
Perpendicular distance between two parallel lines is equal to $\large\frac{\big| c_1-c\big|}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}}$
Hence for these two lines $3x-4y+2=0$ & $3x-4y+10=0$
Perpendicular distance between these two lines is $\large\frac{\big|10-2\big|}{\sqrt{3^2+4^2}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{8}{5}$
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
