The formula for calculating the distance between two points is:
d = ( x 2 - x 1 ) 2 + ( y 2 - y 1 ) 2 + ( z 2 - z 1 ) 2
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
d = ( 5 + 2 ) 2 + ( 6 - 1 ) 2 + ( - 2 + 3 ) 2
d = 7 2 + 5 2 + 1 2
d = 49 + 25 + 1
d = 75
d = 25 3
d = 5 3
d=8.660 rounded to the nearest thousandth.
