    Distance formula = sqrt of (x1-x2) + (y1-y2)

    Notice: Most common mistake is missing the square of difference!

    (-1, 3) and (5, 0) ( x1, y1) (x2, y2) Now could you plug the coordinate into Distance formula?

    @Lvasquez54 Can you do the addition and square now, since @sritama already wrote down perfectly clear and neat :)
