    Have you tried using the distance formula?

    distance between two points (x1 , y1) and (x2 , y2) is \[\sqrt{(x_1 -x_2)^2 + (y_1 - y_2)^2}\]

    \(\huge \ \sqrt{(2 -(-2))^2 + (5 - 1)^2}\) \(\huge \ \sqrt{(2 +2)^2 + (4)^2}\) \(\huge \ \sqrt{(4)^2 + 16}\) \(\huge \ \sqrt{(16+ 16}\) \(\huge \ \sqrt{(32}\)
