The distance between (0,0) and (0,1) on a certain coordinate plane is 1cm. The distance between (0,0)and (1,0) on that same coordinate plane is 1cm. What is the distance between (0,0) and (1,1). Explain the answer

  1. d=distance betwen 2 points

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

    In this case x1=0 y1=0 x2=1 y2=1

    d=sqroot[(1-0)^2+(1-0)^2]

    d=sqroot(1^2+1^2)

    d=sqroot(1+1)

    d=sqroot(2)

    d=1.41421 cm

    In google type:distance formula
    and you will find more sites about that
