I asked a ? earlier and I still do not understand it could someone please help...Find the distance between these 2 points (3,5) & (6,2). Be sure that the answer is simplified and in radical form. Show all work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no we are not allowed to do it that way. I meant my assignment is on computer. I am having to do it all on paper and show all of my work

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you shouldn't do math without graph paper handy. Math 101

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok I will remember that....i have the distance formula as sqrt((x2x1)^2+(y2y1)^2) but I do not know how to put everything into that formula or where to go from there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Label the points and plug them in. It's easy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when it comes to x1 and x2 does it matter which x # I put where

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0label your points like this: (x1,y1) (x2, y2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so I would insert 3 in the x2 spot right

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x1,y1) = (3,5) (x2,y2) = (6,2) Is that clear enough?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when it says x2 or y2 that just means its place and not to the 2nd power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok when I plug them all in I got sqrt((6(3))^2+(2(5)^2=(3)^2+(3)^2=9+9=81

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You did something wrong. For that first one (6(3)^2 = (6+3)^2 = 9^2, not 3^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is why graphing method is better

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But also 9+9 = 18 , not 81. You're supposed to add at the end not multiply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so the 2nd 1 would be (2(5)^2=(7)^2=14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You had the second one right already ....face palm :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2(5))^2 = (2+5)^2 = (3)^2 = 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my points would be (18,9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're not trying to find anymore points. You're trying to find DISTANCE

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what do i have to do from here

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically, when you calculated it the first time, you made a couple of adding mistakes. That's all. Try it again.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And post your steps just like last time. Just be more careful

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i meant for you to try to calculate it again. But try to add correctly this time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it would b 6 and not 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the answer is d = 3root(10). Try to figure out how I got that
