Distance Formula: Given the two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), the distance between these points is given by the formula:

square root of x2-x1 squared +y2-y1 squared

so basically,

1. find the change in x

2. find the change in y

3. square the change in x and the change in y

(x^2) (y^2)

4. add up your change in x^2 +change in y^2

5. fing the square root of ur answer
