anonymous 5 years ago What is the distance between the points (2, 5) and (5, 7)?

So you want the diagonal distance between the two points. So using pythagoreas, you want the x and y distances between both points. Which would be 3 and 2 3^2+2^2=c^2. So c=sqrt 13

a) √10 b) √13 c) 5

$\sqrt{(5-2)^2+(7-5)^2}=\sqrt{9+4}=\sqrt{13}$
