%N Decimal expansion of the shortest distance from the x axis through (3,1) to the line y=x.

%C The shortest segment from one side of an angle T through a point P inside T is called the Philo line of P in T. For discussions and guides to related sequences, see A197008 and A195284.

%e length of Philo line: 2.60819402496101...

%e endpoint on x axis: (3.47797, 0); see A197034

%e endpoint on line y=x: (2.35321, 2.35321)
