Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5distance squared = (X2  X1)^2 + (Y2  Y1)^2 distance squared = (2  3)^2 + (4  2)^2 distance squared = (5)^2 + (6)^2 distance squared = 25 + 36 distance squared = 61 Therefore; distance = square root of 61 = 7.8 approximately  since each unit represents 5 miles: distance (actual) = 7.8 * 5 = 39 miles <== Answer!
