    (6, 8) - (-4, 1) --------- a, b ; a^2 + b^2 = n ; sqrt(n) = distance

    I think the distance formula would be easier.

    really? cause what i did is the same steps as the distance formula (6, 8) - (-4, 1) --------- 10, 7 ; 10^2 + 7^2 = 149 ; sqrt(149) = distance

    i tend to get the numbers mixed around when i have to pull them out and place them into the correct positions inside of a formula
