Q:
# Compute the distance between the two points. (β3, 4) and (21, 11)

Accepted Solution

A:

For this case we have that by definition, the distance between two points is given by:[tex]d = \sqrt {(x_ {2} -x_ {1}) ^ 2+ (y_ {2} -y_ {1}) ^ 2}[/tex]We have the following points:[tex](x_ {1}, y_ {1}): (- 3,4)\\(x_ {2}, y_ {2}) :( 21,11)[/tex]We replace:[tex]d = \sqrt {(21 - (- 3)) ^ 2+ (11-4) ^ 2}\\d = \sqrt {(21 + 3) ^ 2 + (11-4) ^ 2}\\d = \sqrt {(24) ^ 2 + (7) ^ 2}\\d = \sqrt {576 + 49}\\d = \sqrt {625}\\d = 25[/tex]Thus, the distance between the two points is 25 units.Answer:25
