    If the longest distance between any two of the points (-1,-2), (6,-2) and (7,10) is \[P \sqrt{13}\], what is the value of p?

    you can use the formula for distance between 2 points \[d=\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}\] So the distance between (6,-2) and (7, 10) is \[d=\sqrt{(6-7)^2+(-2-10)^2}\]

    yes. so then they have to use the distance formula again to find the length of the third side, and use the longest side to find P.

    no, the distance formula always works. The Pythagorean Theorem only works for right triangles.
