Example 1.6.5



Lines ${L}_{1}$ and ${L}_{2}$ both have the common direction , with ${L}_{1}$ passing through point P:$\left(7,-4,6\right)$ and ${L}_{2}$ passing through Q:$\left(4,-7,1\right)$.

 a) Find the equations of ${L}_{1}$ and ${L}_{2}$.
 b) Calculate the distance between ${L}_{1}$ and ${L}_{2}$.
