## Barrelracer17 one year ago What is the distance between (6, 2) and (-3, -2)? 9 3 square root of 97 5

the distance formula $\huge~\rm~\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$ We are trying to figure out the distance between the 2 point right? This formula will help us find the distance understood?

3. Barrelracer17

yeah

4. pooja195

So you do know that a coordinate is set up like this right? (x,y) <---

5. Barrelracer17

yes

6. pooja195

Ok next we need know that this is how we determine what goes where.... (x1,y1)(x2,y2) understood?

7. Barrelracer17

okay

8. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$ x1=? x2=? y1=? y2=?

9. pooja195

(6, 2) and (-3, -2) x1=6 x2=-3 y1=2 y2=-2 the distance formula $\huge~\rm~\sqrt{(-3-6)^2+(-2-2)^2}$ im sure you can solve it from here.

thank you poooja195

No problem :D
