pre-cal

posted by .

find the distance d (P1 P2) between the P1 and P2

P1=(-1,1);P2=(1,2)

  • pre-cal -

    d = sqrt [ ( x2 - x1 ) ^ 2 + ( y2 - y1 ) ^ 2 ]


    In this case :

    x1 = - 1

    y1 = 1

    x2 = 1

    y2 = 2

    d = sqrt [ ( 1 - ( - 1 ) ) ^ 2 + ( 2 - 1 ) ^ 2 ]

    d = sqrt [ ( 1 + 1 ) ) ^ 2 + 1 ^ 2 ]

    d = sqrt [ 2 ^ 2 + 1 ]

    d = sqrt ( 4 + 1 )

    d = sqrt ( 5 )
