from 2 to 7 is 5 units, from 4 to 0 is 4 units, pythagoras says \(5^2+4^2=d^2\) so \(d=\sqrt{5^2+4^2}\)

A(7, 4) and B(2, 0). D=sqrt(dx^2+dy^2) where dy and dx meand difference in x and y

campbell_stBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the formula is \[d = \sqrt{(x _{2}x _{1})^2 + ( y _{2} y _{1})^2}\] designate the ordered pair A as the 1 point and the other B as the 2 point substitute and evaluate as shown above
