There are two given points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), the distance between these points is prearranged by the formula:
Don't allow the subscripts fright you. They only signifies that there is a "first" point and a "second" point; i.e. that you have two points. Either you can call "first" or "second" is up to you. The distance will be the similar, besides.
Determine the distance between the points (-2, -3) & (-4, 4).
I simply put the coordinates into the Distance Formula:
Then the distance is sqrt(53), or approximately 7.28, rounded off to two decimal places.
