I am stumped on this problem can someone please explain?
Find the distance between the given points (-3, -7) and (-4, 15).
Thanks so much.

• Math -

The distance formula is ..

given two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2)

distance= sqrt ((x1-x2)^2 + (y1-y2)^2)

• Math -

Did I do this problem correctly?
D=sqrt[(15+7)^2+(-4+3)^2]
D=sqrt[484+1]
D=sqrt 485
D ~22.023.

• Math -

yes.
