No.

Distance squared = (-2 - 3)2 + (1 - 7)2 = 52 + 62 = 25 + 36 = 61

So distance = sqrt(61) = 7.8 approx.

Points: (1, -2) and (1, -5) Distance: 3 units by using the distance formula

Points: (2, 1) and (14, 6) Distance: 13

If you mean points of (-4, 2) and (1, 2) then the distance works out as 5

The distance between the points can be calculated by using the difference in the x coordinates, the difference in the y coordinates and Pythagoras. distance = sqrt((difference_in_x_coords)2 + difference_in_y_coords)2) So for the points (-1, 1) and (1, -1) the distance between them is: sqrt((-1 - 1)2 + (1 - -1)2) =sqrt(22 + 22) =sqrt(4 + 4) = sqrt(8) ~= 2.83

Use Pythagoras to find the distance between two points (x0,.y0) and (x1, y1): distance = √(change_in_x² + change_in_y²) → distance = √((x1 - x0)² + (y1 - y0)²) → distance = √((4 - 1)² + (-1 -2)²) → distance = √(3² + (-2)²) → distance = √(9 + 9) → distance = √18 = 3 √2

If you mean points of (-4, 2) and (1, 2) then the distance works out as 5

Distance = (9-5)2+(-6-1)2 = 65 and the square root of this is the distance between the points which is about 8.062257748

The distance between the points can be calculated by using the difference in the x coordinates, the difference in the y coordinates and Pythagoras. distance = sqrt((difference_in_x_coords)2 + difference_in_y_coords)2) So for the points (-1, 1) and (1, -1) the distance between them is: sqrt((-1 - 1)2 + (1 - -1)2) =sqrt(22 + 22) =sqrt(4 + 4) = sqrt(8) ~= 2.83
