Explain the distance formula. then use it to calculate the distance between A(1,1) and B(7,-7). Sorry I suck at this stuff.

Well do you know what the distance formula is ?

ok lets do that part later this is the distance formula \[\huge d=\sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}\] you are given 2 coordinates A(1,1) and B(7,-7). (x1,y1)(x2,y2)
pooja195
  • pooja195
When you plug in the given coordinates you get this... \[\huge d=\sqrt{(7-1)^2+(-7-1)^2}\] Solve from here. :)

sorry i am i really do suck at math...
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it's 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
My way is easier
pooja195
  • pooja195
@yomamabf they want you to use the distance formula read the directions. Congrats on giving the answer.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh i alwys thought my way was the distance formula we didn't even learn the real formula
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
thank you so much @yomamabf sorry her way IS easier @pooja195
pooja195
  • pooja195
@cheesymcdouble Read the directions that were provided they want the distance formula not her way.
pooja195
  • pooja195
@yomamabf we need to do what the directions say.
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
ok ok but it also wants the answer
pooja195
  • pooja195
you get the answer after you calculate this : \[\huge d=\sqrt{(7-1)^2+(-7-1)^2}\] Solve from here. :)

  • cheesymcdouble
alright thanks.
pooja195
  • pooja195
Also theres another part to your question it asks explain the distance formula are you fimiliar with what the formula is used for?
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
wait what
pooja195
  • pooja195
This is why reading the directions is important.

The distance formula is used to figure out the distance between 2 points. :)
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
ok thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
fwiw both @pooja195 and @yomamabf applied the distance formula. The distance formula is just the specific application of the Pythagorean theorem when you have two points and want to know the distance between them. One method uses a formula, the other draws it out. Use the one that works best for you.
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
ya the drawing one actually helps me best.
pooja195
  • pooja195
@peachpi but they want the asker to use the distance formula .-.
pooja195
  • pooja195
Oh nvm lol i thought they wanted the physical formula and not the drawing...
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah. it's the same either way. \(x_2-x_1=6\) and \(y_2-y_1=8\)
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
ok thanks guys
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol

cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
so the answer is ten?
pooja195
  • pooja195
yep :)
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
ok um how did you that...
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
wouldnt it be 14
anonymous
  • anonymous
you don't add 6 and 8. \[\sqrt{6^2+8^2}\]
cheesymcdouble
  • cheesymcdouble
um ok then how do you...nvm i suck at this stuff and i dont want to frustrate anyone
anonymous
  • anonymous
6² means 6x6 8² means 8x8
pooja195
  • pooja195
lol we are here to help! You wont frustrate people :) 6^2+8^2 36+64=100 srt100=10

ohhhh ok thanks @pooja195 and @peachpi this now makes sense to me
