Find the distance between (43, -15) & (29, -3). a. square root of 520, or 22.8 units b. square root of 1409, or 37.5 units c. square root of 270, or 16.4 units d. square root of 340, or 18.4 units
i kno the distance formula and i solved it but i got sqrt of 52
Draw the right triangle and use pythagorean theorem to find the hypotenuse. What are the height and base of that triangle?
idk i didnt kno it was a triangle this was a question on my test no triangle was wit it

The distance formula *is* the pythagorean theorem.
it might help if you listed the steps you took to get to that answer. that way I may be able to spot where you may have made a mistake.
Thank u so much @devibabyy66
i did the distance formula i plugged in all the numbers and solved it normally
Distance formula is taken from pythag theorem but its not the it. get distance formula by this:
