Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets do that part later this is the distance formula \[\huge d=\sqrt{(x_2x_1)^2+(y_2y_1)^2}\] you are given 2 coordinates A(1,1) and B(7,7). (x1,y1)(x2,y2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you plug in the given coordinates you get this... \[\huge d=\sqrt{(71)^2+(71)^2}\] Solve from here. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@yomamabf they want you to use the distance formula read the directions. Congrats on giving the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i alwys thought my way was the distance formula we didn't even learn the real formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you so much @yomamabf sorry her way IS easier @pooja195

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@cheesymcdouble Read the directions that were provided they want the distance formula not her way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@yomamabf we need to do what the directions say.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok ok but it also wants the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you get the answer after you calculate this : \[\huge d=\sqrt{(71)^2+(71)^2}\] Solve from here. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also theres another part to your question it asks explain the distance formula are you fimiliar with what the formula is used for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is why reading the directions is important.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The distance formula is used to figure out the distance between 2 points. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0fwiw 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh nvm lol i thought they wanted the physical formula and not the drawing...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah. it's the same either way. \(x_2x_1=6\) and \(y_2y_1=8\)
