- The distance from a point $(x_1, y_1)$ to a line $ax+by+c$ is $ \bigg| \large\frac{ax_1+by_1+c}{\sqrt{a^2+b^2}} \bigg|$

Step 1

The coordinates of the arbitrary point on $x+y=4$ can be obtained by putting $x=t$ (or $y=t)$ and then obtaining $y$(or $ x)$ from the equation of the line, where $t$ is a parameter.

Substituting $x=t$ in $x+y=4$ we get

$y=4-t$

$ \therefore $ The coordinates of an arbitrary point on the given line are $P(t, 4-t).$

Let $P(t, 4-t)$ be the required point.

Step 2

It is given that the distance of $P$ from the line $ 4x+3y-10=0$ is unity.

$ \therefore \bigg| \large\frac{4t+3(4-t)-10}{\sqrt{4^2+3^2}} \bigg|$$=1$

(i.e) $|t+2|=5$

(i.e) $t+2= \pm 5$

$ \therefore t = -7\: or \: t = 3$

Hence the required points are (-7,11) or ( 3,1)
