To calculate the distance between 2 given points.
Use the distance formula
d = ( x 2 - x 1 ) 2 + ( y 2 - y 1 ) 2
where ( x 1 , y 1 ) , ( x 2 , y 2 ) are 2 points
here let ( x 1 , y 1 ) = ( - 5 , - 9 ) and ( x 2 , y 2 ) = ( 4 , 7 )
substitute the values into equation.
d = ( 4 - ( - 5 ) 2 ) + ( 7 - ( - 9 ) 2 ) = ( 9 2 + 16 2 ) = 337 18.4
