Find the distance between the given points
(3, 5) and (8, 2)

(8-3)^2 + (2-5)^2

5^2 + -3^2

25 + 9 = 34 sqrt of 34 = 5.83

  • algebra please check - ,

    your presentation is considered "poor form"

    Proper way:

    distance = √((8-3)^2 + (2-5)^2 )
    = √( 5^2 + (-3)^2)
    = √(25+9)
    = √34

  • question for Reiny - ,

    Reiny,

    I know that my presentation is poor form. I only know how to work this in MS Word the right way. Is my answer supposed to d=sqrt 34 or d=5.83?

  • algebra please check - ,

    Same thing, after rounding off. I would prefer the exact answer of Reiny
