\(\bf \text{distance between 2 points}\\
d = \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2}\)

what?

Isn't that the formula?

- anonymous

idk i never seen that before

@littlenugget

- littlenugget

yes, you would do the formula that @Luigi0210 put. So you would just plug in the coordinates.
(x1, y1) = (4,11)
(x2,y2) =(3,4)

- littlenugget

It's the distance formula

- littlenugget

i meant what @jdoe0001 put

- anonymous

ok so like

- anonymous

|dw:1377818927049:dw|

- anonymous

idk i am getting so stressed over this

- littlenugget

\[d=\sqrt{(3-4)^{2}+(4-11)^{2}}\]
Don't worry, it's really simple after you get used to it. ;)
See how i plugged the coordinates in?
the first thing you are going to want to do is solve the things in the parenthesis, (3-4) and (4-11) so what would you get?

- anonymous

so 3-4= -1 and 4-11= -7 and -1*-1= 1 and -7*-7= 49?

- anonymous

and when you add them you get 48?

- anonymous

when rounded you get 50?

- littlenugget

Yes!!!! :DDDD
you'll have:
\[\sqrt{50}\]

- littlenugget

Now all you have to do is plug it into the calculator and see the decimal it gets, then round it to the nearest tenth

- anonymous

ok something went wrong when i copy and paisted the problem: so the problem is
L(-4, 11),M(-3, 4) how would i plug it in???

- anonymous

likee

- anonymous

thats the same thing right?

- littlenugget

ohhh ok, yeah you would plug it in the same way as the last one.

- anonymous

so the answer is still 50?

- littlenugget

nope, because the new one you posted have negatives :( so we're going to need to plug it in again: \[d=\sqrt{(-3+4)^{2}+(4-11)^{2}}\]

- littlenugget

remember that the first step is to solve inside the parentheses, so what would we get?

- anonymous

but 11 isnt negative??

- anonymous

4 and 4 is so wouldnt it be? (-3+4) second power + (-4+ll) second power?

- littlenugget

L(-4, 11),M(-3, 4)
L(x1,y1), M(x2,y2)

See how it's plugged in?

- anonymous

oh yeaa

- littlenugget

so that's why the 11 and the four isn't negative ;)

- littlenugget

so now lets just solve what's inside the parentheses :)
\[d=\sqrt{(-3+4)^{2}+(4-11)^{2}}\]

- anonymous

ok so i it would be - 48?

- littlenugget

\[d=\sqrt{(1)^{2}+(-7)^{2}}\]

- anonymous

ohhh 50

- littlenugget

yep haha i guess it was the same as the last xD sorry!
but don't forget to plug it into the calculator to get the decimal!

- anonymous

ok what would i plug into my calculator to get the decimal?

- anonymous

so its 7.07?

- littlenugget

yes! but you're rounding it to the tenth, which is the first number to the right of the decimal, so now it would be _____

- anonymous

so its 7.1???

- littlenugget

Yep! That's it!!! :D

- littlenugget

Do you understand everything?

- anonymous

woo thank you so much

- littlenugget

Anything you want me to clarify?

- anonymous

yes now i do thx :) nah i think i got it from here ill notify if i need anything else ;)

- littlenugget

Yeah!!!! :DDDDDD
haha no prob, anytime ;)
