    Do you know the distance formula?

    For two points, (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) the distance between them is: d = sqrt((x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2) That looks confusing. This looks easier to understand:|dw:1355170387441:dw|

    In other words, take the difference between the x values of the two points and square it. Then take the difference between the y values of the two points and square that too. Then add those two squares together and take the square root.

    Now look at what you're asked for: the length of DE. Since you know the triangles are congruent, which side in the first triangle corresponds to side DE?
