Q:
# find the difference between (7,-1) and (-8,-9)

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex]\bf ~~~~~~~~~~~~\textit{distance between 2 points} \\\\ (\stackrel{x_1}{7}~,~\stackrel{y_1}{-1})\qquad (\stackrel{x_2}{-8}~,~\stackrel{y_2}{-9})\qquad \qquad d = \sqrt{( x_2- x_1)^2 + ( y_2- y_1)^2} \\\\\\ d=\sqrt{[-8-7]^2+[-9-(-1)]^2}\implies d=\sqrt{(-8-7)^2+(-9+1)^2} \\\\\\ d=\sqrt{225+64}\implies d=\sqrt{289}\implies d=17[/tex]
