(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 -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 8:47pmyour presentation is considered "poor form"

Proper way:

distance = √((8-3)^2 + (2-5)^2 )

= √( 5^2 + (-3)^2)

= √(25+9)

= √34

- question for 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 -
**drwls**, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 9:32pmSame thing, after rounding off. I would prefer the exact answer of Reiny
