Question

# Find the distance between the points $$P ( - 5 , - 4 )$$ and $$Q ( 3 , - 7 )$$ .

Solution

## The two points given are $$P(-5,-4),Q(3,-7)$$The formula for finding the distance between two points is$$D=\sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2}$$So,$$PQ=\sqrt{(-5-3)^2+(-4+7)^2}$$$$PQ=\sqrt{64+9}$$$$PQ=\sqrt{73}$$Distance between $$P$$ and $$Q$$ is $$\sqrt{73}$$ unitsMathematics
