What is the least possible distance between a point on the circle $$x^2 + y^2 = 1$$ and a point on the line $$y = \frac{3}{4}x - 3$$ ?

m13#12

* $$1.4$$
* $$\sqrt{2}$$
* $$1.7$$
* $$\sqrt{3}$$
* $$2.0$$

Although I was able to get correct answer it took me lot of time. Can someone explain shorter route
