**Distance Formula:** Given the two points (*x*1,
*y*1) and (*x*2, *y*2), 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
