i kno the distance formula and i solved it but i got sqrt of 52

2. janessia

@asnaseer can u help?

3. CliffSedge

Draw the right triangle and use pythagorean theorem to find the hypotenuse. What are the height and base of that triangle?

4. janessia

The distance formula *is* the pythagorean theorem.

8. asnaseer

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

10. janessia

i did the distance formula i plugged in all the numbers and solved it normally

11. TAKEBACKMATH

Distance formula is taken from pythag theorem but its not the it. get distance formula by this:
