Find the distance of the point (3,4,5) from x-axis.

Hi!
You have not clearly mentioned the coordinate of the point on the x-axis from which the distance to the point (3, 4, 5) is to be calculated. If the question is “Find the shortest distance of the point (3, 4, 5) from the x-axis.”, then here is the answer.
 
The shortest distance between of the point (3, 4, 5) from x-axis is the perpendicular distance to the x-axis from (3, 4, 5). The perpendicular from (3, 4, 5) to the x-axis intersects on it at the point (3, 0, 0).

Cheers!
