The formula for calculating the distance between two points is:
$d=\sqrt{{\left({x}_{2}-{x}_{1}\right)}^{2}+{\left({y}_{2}-{y}_{1}\right)}^{2}}$
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
$d=\sqrt{{\left(2-3\right)}^{2}+{\left(-12+25\right)}^{2}}$
$d=\sqrt{{\left(-1\right)}^{2}+{13}^{2}}$
$d=\sqrt{170}$
$d=13.038$ rounded to the nearest thousandth.
