Question

What is the distance between the point (−10, −2) and the point (−4, −2) ?

−14 units

−6 units

6 units

14 units

I'm pretty sure the number is 6 but is it positive or negative?

2 Answer

  • distance = root (x1-x2)²+(y1-y2)² = root (-10--4)²+(-2--2)² = 6
    the answer is 6 units   (The answer is 6 units)
  • Answer:

    [tex]d=6\ units[/tex]

    The distance is a positive number

    Step-by-step explanation:

    we know that

    the formula to calculate the distance between two points is equal to

    [tex]d=\sqrt{(y2-y1)^{2}+(x2-x1)^{2}}[/tex]

    [tex]A(-10,-2)\\B(-4,-2)[/tex]  

    substitute the values

    [tex]d=\sqrt{(-2+2)^{2}+(-4+10)^{2}}[/tex]

    [tex]d=\sqrt{(6)^{2}}[/tex]

    [tex]d=6\ units[/tex]
