1. Use the distance formula for finding points on the xy-plane.

Let d = distance.

d = sqrt{(x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2}

You must apply the above formula to find the distance between points A and B, B and C and A and C.

So, you must apply the distance formula 3 times.

Got it?

If not, write back.
