Find the distance between the given points
(3, 5) and (8, 2)
(83)^2 + (25)^2
5^2 + 3^2
25 + 9 = 34 sqrt of 34 = 5.83

your presentation is considered "poor form"
Proper way:
distance = √((83)^2 + (25)^2 )
= √( 5^2 + (3)^2)
= √(25+9)
= √34

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?

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