I am stumped on this problem can someone please explain?
Find the distance between the given points (3, 7) and (4, 15).
Thanks so much.

Math 
bobpursley,
The distance formula is ..
given two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2)
distance= sqrt ((x1x2)^2 + (y1y2)^2) 
Math 
B.B.,
Did I do this problem correctly?
D=sqrt[(15+7)^2+(4+3)^2]
D=sqrt[484+1]
D=sqrt 485
D ~22.023.
Is this answer correct? 
Math 
bobpursley,
yes.
