    do you know the distance formula between two points?

    to find the distance between two point use the distance formula:\[D=\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^2+(y _{2}-y _{1})^2}\]

    just substitute your points for example (a,b) are your first coordinates then they will be your \[(x _{1},y _{1})\] (c,d) are your second coordinates they will be your \[(x _{2},y _{2})\]

    So (-1-6)^2+(14-16)^2

    -7^2+-2^2 or 49+4

    the answer should be \[D=\sqrt{53}\]

    it says `Find the distance ... to the nearest tenth` so you'll have to convert to decimal form and round

    7.280109889 just round this to the nearest tenth , then BOOM .. you're done
