In the coordinate plane, what is the length of the line segment that connects points at (5, 4) and (−3, −1) ?

  • Hi, it is simple

    Use the formula:

    Let A = (5,4) and B = (-3,-1)

    Where,

    A = (xa, ya) and B = (xb , yb)

    Then,

    d(A, B) = √(xb -xa)^2 +(yb-ya)^2

    Replacing it:

    d(A, B) = √(-3-5)^2+(-1-4)^2

    = √(-8)^2+(-5)^2

    = √(64+25)

    = √(89)

    As the question does not specify the unit of measure.

    d(A, B) = √(89) u.m

    Unit of measure

    Hope this helps!
