- Distance[Point A, Point B]
- Yields the distance between two points
*A*and*B*. - Distance[Point, Line]
- Yields the distance between the point and the line.
- Distance[Line g, Line h]
- Yields the distance between the parallel lines
*g*and*h*. **Note:**The distance between intersecting lines is 0. Thus, this command is only interesting for parallel lines.**Note:**See also Distance or Length tool .
