The distance between three dimensions is similar to the distance between two dimensions.
We use the formula:
   d = ( x 2 - x 1 ) 2 + ( y 2 - y 1 ) 2 + ( z 2 - z 1 ) 2 , where x, y, and z are the coordinates.
Let's plug in the values for the coordinates into the formula. Pay attention to the negative signs:
   d = ( 5 - 3 ) 2 + ( 8 - 9 ) 2 + ( 8 - 8 ) 2
And now simplify:
   d = ( 2 ) 2 + ( - 1 ) 2 + ( 0 ) 2
   d = 4 + 1
   d = 5
