Given the two points ( x 1 , y 1 ) and ( x 2 , y 2 ) , the Distance between them is given by the formula:
d = ( x 2 - x 1 ) 2 + ( y 2 - y 1 ) 2
Here, the coordinates of the points are (5,8)and(5,1)
d C D = ( 5 - 5 ) 2 + ( 1 - 8 ) 2
( 0 ) 2 + ( - 7 ) 2
0 + 49
49
= 7 units
The distance from C(5, 8) to D(5, 1) is 7 units.
