distance = root (x1x2)²+(y1y2)² = root (104)²+(22)² = 6
the answer is 6 units (The answer is 6 units)

Answer:
[tex]d=6\ units[/tex]
The distance is a positive number
Stepbystep explanation:
we know that
the formula to calculate the distance between two points is equal to
[tex]d=\sqrt{(y2y1)^{2}+(x2x1)^{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]
