Can someone help me with this? Find the distance between points m(6, 16) and z(-1, 14) to the nearest tenth

    \[\huge~\rm~\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1 )^2}\]

    This is the distance formula can you plug in the numbers? :)

    (6^2 - -1^1)^2 + (16^2 - 14^1)^2 (36 - 1)^2 + (256 - 14)^2 35^2 + 242^2 1,225 + 58,564 = 59, 789 I think I did it wrong...

    Why did you sqrt everything? :O

    Well after I put the numbers in the formula I tried solving it... what am I doing wrong?

    sqrt((1-6)^2 + (14-16)^2)

    Not quite: \(\sf \color{red}{\sqrt{(-1-6)^2+(14-16)^2}}\) which is approximately 7.28, but rounding to the nearest tenth is 7.
