5. anonymous

Use the distance formula:$\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^{2}+(y _{2}-y _{1})^{2}}$

ok, here's a website that explains it very well. http://www.purplemath.com/modules/distform.htm

7. anonymous

Where you use the x's and y's from your coordinates

this really, helps. if you want help from me, id be happy. but if you find this informative, then it would be harder for me to keep rewriting the equation.
