If the points have the same x-coordinates but different yy-coordinates, then they lie on a vertical segment. So, we find the absolute value of the difference of the yy-coordinates. The order of subtraction is not important since we will take its absolute value. For example, the distance between (0,1)and(0,3)is1(3)∣=∣4∣=4or31∣=∣4∣=4
