## anonymous 5 years ago What is the distance between the points (-5, 2) and (4, 9)?

$\sqrt({x _{2}-x _{1})^{2}}+(y _{2}-y _{1})^{2}$ This is the distance formula for distance between 2 points. the radical should extend over all of the equation. You have been provided the two points, you have the x and y values needed. Good luck with your solution.

$\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^{2}+(y _{2}-y _{1})^{2}}$ There it is just plug in the values and solve.
