Hello request you to please elborate more or if possible write step by step as i am highly confused with the below line .

So we have the right triangle with legs 4 and 3 and hypotenuse 5. What is the height of this triangle (perpendicular from right angle to the hypotenuse)? Since the perpendicular to the hypotenuse always divides the triangle into two triangles with the same properties as the original triangle: heightleg1=leg2hypotenuseheightleg1=leg2hypotenuse. Hence height3=45height3=45, which gives height=2.4height=2.4.

I understood the least possible distance between a point on the circle to mean any point on the circumference to the line. How do we know to deduce it means from the origin of the circle to the line?

Yes, it's the distance between the point on the circumference to the line. We just find the distance from the centre and then subtract the length of the radius:

Now, the minimum distance from the circle to the line would be: length of perpendicular from the origin to the line (as the circle is centered at the origin) minus the radius of a circle (which is 1).

Those are the values of x and y intercepts of y = 3/4*x - 3. To get these values put x = 0 for y-intercept and y = 0 for x-intercept.
