## anonymous one year ago On a coordinate grid, point V is at (6, −8) and point S is at (6, 8). The distance (in units) between points V and S is ______. (Input only whole numbers, such as 2.)

1. anonymous

use distance formula. $d=\sqrt{(x _{2}-x _{1})^2+(y _{2}-y _{1})^2}$

2. anonymous

can you explain that a little simpeler

3. anonymous

any co-ordinate is given by (x,y) right?

4. anonymous

yeah

6. anonymous

right?

7. anonymous

yes

8. anonymous

now just sub those variables into the distance formulae i provided you

9. anonymous

have you learnt the distance formulae?

10. anonymous

otherwise theres an easier way (for this question)
