### Question Description

Find the distance between *A*(4, -2) and *B*(10, -7)

## Explanation & Answer

Hi !

*A(4, -2) and B(10, -7)*

*Using distance formula which is*

*d = √ [ (y2 - y1)^2 + (x2 - x1)^2 ]*

*Now putting the values, we get*

*d = √ [ (- 7 + 2)^2 + (10 - 4)^2 ]*

*d = √ [ (- 5)^2 + (6)^2 ]*

*d = √ [ 25 + 36 ]*

*d = √61*

*Hence the distance between them is √61 or 7.81.*
