    The rectangular coordinate system, also known as the Cartesian coordinate system, identifies points based on their x- and y-coordinates. When you have two points identified by their coordinates, you can find the distance between the two points using the distance formula, which derives from the Pythagorean theorem. You can form a right triangle with the two points and then use the change in the x-coordinates to find one side and the change in the y-coordinates to find the other side. From there, you can calculate to find the hypotenuse, which measures the distance between the two points.
