distance formula

posted by .

I need to find the distance between two points, (6,-3) and (-1,4).

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

I got that down to the sqrt of 98, which is the decimal 9.899494937, approximated at 9.9. Is this the right answer?

  • distance formula -

    d^2 = 7^2 + 7^2 = 49*2
    d = 7 sqrt 2
    d = 9.899 etc yes

  • distance formula -

    Thank you for taking the time to double check my work! God bless!
