You need to use this equation: \[d=\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^{2}+(y _{2}-y _{1})^{2}}\]

Find "distance" between x's and y's then use them as sides of a right triangle from -3 to 3 is 6 "distance" and from 2 to -6 is 8 "distance" 6 squared plus 8 squared is the "distance" squared. 36 + 64 = c squared, 100 is c squared, so c is 10
