How do you find the distance of 2 points?

  • geometry -

    consider a square grid where the points are opposite corners of a diagonal. Then use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the diagonal.

    If the horizontal sides of the rectangle are a and b, then the distance is

    √(a^2+b^2)
