Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Find the distance from (5,3) to (4,4) Distance= Sqrt[(54)^2+(34)^2]=Sqrt(81+49)= Sqrt(130). Without a calculator handy, the square root of 130 will be more than 11 (because 11*11=121) and less than 12 (12*12=144) but a little closer to 11. D. 11.4 miles (on a calculator 11.40175425099138)
