$\text{calculate the distance using the}\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\text{distance formula}$
$•xd=\sqrt{{\left({x}_{2}-{x}_{1}\right)}^{2}+{\left({y}_{2}-{y}_{1}\right)}^{2}}$
$\text{let}\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\left({x}_{1},{y}_{1}\right)=\left(2,17\right)\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\text{and}\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\left({x}_{2},{y}_{2}\right)=\left(-10,25\right)$
$d=\sqrt{{\left(-10-2\right)}^{2}+{\left(25-17\right)}^{2}}$
$d=\sqrt{{\left(-12\right)}^{2}+{8}^{2}}=\sqrt{144+64}=\sqrt{208}\approx 14.42$
