Does the the distance from (-1,7) to (-5,-4)= sqrt(137)? I'm not sure if I did it right.

    Can it not be simplified any more?

    Nope. You can find it in decimals if you want to

    I need it in the form of a root. \[\sqrt{137}\] is the final answer?

    \[\sqrt{(-1+5)^2+(7+4)^2}=\sqrt{4^2+11^2}=\sqrt{16+121}=\sqrt{137}\] just practicing my latex

    Using the same formula, then the distance from (-4,-6) to (4,-5) should be \[\sqrt{65}\] correct?

    yes. distance from -4 to 4 is 8. distance from -6 to -5 is 1 \[8^2+1^2=65\]

    one last question. \[\sqrt{8}\]=\[2\sqrt{2}\] and not just 2 right?
