Try these...

Formula

Suppose you have (-2,-3) and (-4, 4).*Note that -2 is x1 and -3 is y1 and -4 is x2 and 4 is y2.*Now plug the numbers where the formula says to put them. you now have:d= (-2-4)2 + (-3-4)2Solve the problems in the parentheses. Now you have:d= 2 to the 2nd power + -7 to the 2nd power2 times 2 is 4 and -7 times -7 is 49.4+49=5353 square rooted is 7.28 (rounded)

Don't subtract a y from a x or a x from a y. Pair them correctly!

NO Negatives!

Going to point 1 to point 2 or vice versa the distance is the same in either direction
