Homework Help: Precalculus

Posted by Greg on Friday, September 14, 2012 at 2:35pm.

The distance between 2 points (z1,Y1) and (x2,y2) is given by d = square root (x1-x2)+ (y1-y2)^2)

a - pick 2 arbitrary points in 3 dimensions, (x1, y1, and Z1) and (x2,y2,z2) and plot these points. Not that there are 0- degrees between the xy, xz, and yz axes.

b- using your sketch from part a, find the distance between these 2 points, generalize the above equation to 3 dimensions.
