Point A(2, 0) does not lie on line L2 but still question be solved as follows
Let Point A be any point on line L1 and B and C are points on L2
The distance between L1 and L2 is given by
(10-5)/sqrt(9+16)  = 1
Let D be foot of prependicular from A to BC, then AD = 1 (distance between lines)
Clearly sin60 = AD/AB where AB is side of traingle
AB = AD/sin60 =  2/(sqrt(3))
