If p is the length of the perpendicular from the origin to the line $\large\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{6}$$=1$ then $\large\frac{1}{a^2}+\frac{1}{b^2}$=?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\large\frac{1}{p^2}&(b)\;p^2\\(c)\;0&(d)\;1\end{array}$

Can you answer this question?

p=length of perpendicular from origin to $\large\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{6}$$=1$
$p=\large\frac{\mid 0+0-1\mid}{\sqrt{\Large\frac{1}{a^2}+\frac{1}{b^2}}}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1}{\sqrt{\Large\frac{1}{a^2}+\frac{1}{b^2}}}$
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
