    distance 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!
