## anonymous one year ago What is the distance between points (9, –7) and (9, 4) on a coordinate plane?

i thin it is 11

The distance of two points $$(x_1,y_1)$$ and $$(x_2, y_2)$$ is: $\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2}$

If you can plot these two points on graph, then you will realize that there is no need to use formula or going deep anywhere..

|dw:1433521350661:dw|
