how do I find my distance using the distance formula with points (-1,1) and (2,-3) also would the answer be 5 or the square root of 5?

\(\Large d=\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^{2}+(y _{2}-y _{1})^2}\) Just plug in the x's and y's of your two points: (-1,1) and (2,-3) \(\Large d=\sqrt{(-1-2)^{2}+(1-(-3))^2}\) and simplify! What do you get for the answer?

5 squared?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the distance is 5 units
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, you took the sqrt root of 5 squared to get 5. that is the distance

Do you understand why? How to get that from the formula? \(\Large d=\sqrt{(-1-2)^{2}+(1-(-3))^2}=\sqrt{(-3)^{2}+(4)^2}\\\Large =\sqrt{9+16}=?\)
