Outkast3r09Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that is your slope matt.... distance would be \[\sqrt{(x _2x _1)^2+(y _2y _1)^2}\]

mid point will be \[(\frac{x _1+x _2}{2},\frac{y _1+y _2}{2})\]

so your midpont would be \[\frac{5+1}{2},\frac{3+6}{2}= (2,\frac{9}{2})\]

distance will be \[\sqrt{(15)^2+(6(3))^2}=\sqrt{(6)^2+(3)^2}=\sqrt{36+9}=\sqrt{45}=\sqrt{9*5}=3\sqrt{5}\]
