5. Find the distance from the point (3, 7) to the line y = 2x.
6. A constant force with vector representation F = 10i + 18j moves an object along a straight line
from the point (2, 3) to the point (4, 9). Find the work done if the distance is measured in meters
and the magnitude of the force is measured in newtons.

7. Eliminate the parameter to find the Cartesian equation of the curve. And sketch the curve and
indicate with an arrow the direction in which the curve is traced as the parameter increases.
(a) x = 2t − 1, y = 2 − t, −3 ≤ t ≤ 3.
(b) x = 2t − 1, y = t2 − 1.

through (1, 3) and (−2, 7).

9. Determine whether the lines L1 and L2 given by the vector equations are parallel, perpendicular,
or neither. If the lines are not parallel, find their point of intersection.
L1 : r(t) = (−4 + 2t)i + (5 + t)j
L2 : r(t) = (2 + 3t)i + (4 − 6t)j
