The distance formula for Cartesian coordinates is
d = ( x 2 - x 1 ) 2 + ( y 2 - y 1 ) 2
Where x 1 , y 1 , and x 2 , y 2 are the Cartesian coordinates of two points respectively.Let ( x 1 , y 1 ) represent (2,−6) and ( x 2 , y 2 ) represent (4.−4).
d = ( 4 - 2 ) 2 + ( - 4 - ( - 6 ) ) 2
d = 4 + ( 2 ) 2
d = 4 + 4
d = 8
d = 2 2
Hence the distance between the given points is 2 2 units.
