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 = ( - 1 - 8 ) 2 + ( - 3 - - 4 ) 2 + ( 5 - 6 ) 2
d = - 9 2 + 1 2 + ( - 1 ) 2
d = 83
Or
d = 9.110 rounded to the nearest thousandth.
