## Diana97 3 years ago What is the distance between points (3, 1) and (0, –5)? Round to the nearest tenth. 11.0 19.4 8.7 6.7

Well, we have to use the distance formula. So: $\sqrt{(1-(-5))^{2}+(3-0)^{2}}$ $\sqrt{6^{2}+3^{2}}$ I think you can take it from there. But square the 6 and the 3 first and then add them before solving the square root.

3. Diana97

i mean 6.7
