How can we find the distance between two points A(-1,2) and B(3,6)

Thanks

Re: MYP Mathematics Distance between two points

IB Maths Studies, Coordinate geometry, Distance Formula

The distance between two points $A(x_{1}, y_{1})$ and $B(x_{2}, y_{2})$ is given by the following formula:
$d_{AB}= \sqrt{( x_{2}- x_{1})^2+( y_{2}- y_{1})^2}$

Applying the above formula in our case we have

$d_{AB}= \sqrt{( 3-(-1))^2+(6- 2)^2}=\sqrt{16+16}=\sqrt{32}$

Hope these help!
