Minimal distance from a point to a lines

We present a solution to the problem of computing a point in the plane minimizing the distance to n given lines. We used an experimental mathematics approach: using dynamic geometry software, we gathered data which allowed us to conjecture and testing our hypothesis. Finally we formalized our reasoning to prove the conjecture. Although this solution was known, our method could be of interest.
