Distance2 = (21-9)2 + (16-11)2 = 169 and the square root of this is the distance which is 13 units

The distance formula takes the difference between the two x-coordinates (9-3 = 6) and the difference between the two y-coordinates (-4-7 = -11), then squares these two answers (62 = 36 and (-11)2 = 121), then adds them together (36 + 121 = 157), then takes the square root of this final number. Thus the distance between (9, -4) and (3, 7) is sqrt(157), or about 12.53.

If you mean points of (1, -2) and (-9, 3) then the distance is about 11 units using the distance formula

Distance2 = (21-9)2 + (16-11)2 = 169 and the square root of this is the distance which is 13 units

If you mean points of (1, -2) and (-9, 3) then it works out as about 11

If you mean endpoints (-1, -3) and (11, -8) then by using the distance formula the length between the points is 13 units

It is 51 - (-11) = 62.

The distance between these two places is 11 miles. This distance is only approximate. This is not the exact distance.
