## rebecca1233 2 years ago Find the distance between the points (2, -3) and (5, -4)

1. mikala1

YOU TAKE 2 AND -4 AND YOU TAKE 3 AND 5 AND SUBTRACT THEM AND THATS YOUR ANSWER opps sorry about the caps

2. rebecca1233

2 - -4 so( 6 , -2)

3. chihiroasleaf

the distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is $d=\sqrt{\left( x _{1}-x _{2} \right)^{?}+\left( y _{1}-y _{2} \right)^{2}}$

4. mikala1

correct

5. mayankdevnani

Use the distance formula: $d=\sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2}$

6. rebecca1233

im right? but what happend to the -3 u just said 3 u didnt say -3

7. mikala1

i just got done doing that test with mrs ausman a flvs teacher

8. rebecca1233

its supposed to be -3 - 5 right u said 3-5

9. mayankdevnani

x1=2 x2=5 y1=-3 y2=-4

10. mayankdevnani

can you solve it now @rebecca1233

11. rebecca1233

12. mikala1

opps yes it still is -3

13. chihiroasleaf

use the distance formula @rebecca1233 , just like @mayankdevnani and I write ... :)

14. rebecca1233

i got (6,-8)

15. mayankdevnani

and then put the values in distance formula x1=2, x2=5 ,y1=-3 ,y2=-4

16. mayankdevnani

|dw:1353938207772:dw|

17. mikala1

opps im so wrong @mayankdevnani keeps going

18. mayankdevnani

now solve @rebecca1233

19. mayankdevnani

i give you HINT.

20. mayankdevnani

can you solve..don't be fell shame if you don't has answer. ok @rebecca1233
