## anonymous 5 years ago Find the Distance between the points: (-6,5) and (2,-3) When plugged into the formula for distance, you get the square root of 0...

$d=\sqrt{(2+6)^2-(-3-5)^2}$

2. anonymous

No, wait, I did something stupid. Nevermind.

3. anonymous

No, I didn't do anything stupid, i was right...

4. anonymous

Ugh, yes, I did something stupid...

5. anonymous

6. anonymous

Yes, that, and I forgot that squaring a negative term results in a positive answer.

7. anonymous

This should be: $6\sqrt{2}$

8. anonymous

I got 8sqrt(2) because both those parenthesis squared are 65

9. anonymous

64 I mean

10. anonymous

8*8=64

11. anonymous

I broke 128 down into factors. That left me with: $2*2*2\sqrt{6}$ You are right.

12. anonymous

I added them instead of multiplying them... Heh heh, ty for helping me find it though.

13. anonymous

No problem it would be also easy to break it down as sqrt(2*64)

14. anonymous

Okay yes, I follow you there.
