What idea is that @jguillory4? Mind sharing?

\(D=\sqrt{(0-(-8)^2+(4-10)^2}\\ D = \sqrt{(8)^2+(-6)^2}\\D=\sqrt{64+36}\)

add 64 + 36 = 100 \(\sqrt{100}=10\)

why not find the distance between the x values, then the distance between the y values and just use Pythagoras' Theorem... the distance between the points is the hypotenuse it means less to remember

so always ask if they can plot the points. then if the can find the distance, then use pythagoras
