Week 12 – Math 10

This week in math 10 we started a new unit and one section we learned about was the distance formula. I will be showing you how to find the distance between each pair of points.

  1. (2,0) and (7,12) – First you must subtract the y coordinates which are 0 and 12. So 0 – 12 = -12. Then you must subtract the x coordinates which are 2 – 7 which equals -5.

Now you must square -5 and – 12 and that will become 25 and 144. now add 25 and 144 together and you get 169. The last step is to square root 169 which is 13. So now you know the distance between (2,0) and (7,12) which is 13.
