## anonymous 4 years ago Find the distance between the points (-1, -2) and (-4, 3) in simplest radical form. Answer

1. anonymous

so do you know the distance formula?

2. anonymous

yes

3. anonymous

well, first you just plug in the numbers.|dw:1338519672513:dw|

4. anonymous

i have the solution just how do u turn it into a radical

5. anonymous

6. anonymous

well, before you actually do the square root of the answer, it would just be $\sqrt{34}$ right?

7. anonymous

yea

8. anonymous

well, that's simplest radical form because 34's only factors are 1, 2, 17, 34. and none of these are numbers that you can find the square root of that is a whole number so $\sqrt{34}$ would be in simplest radical form. understand?
