Think of it like a right triangle, where we want to find that hypotenuse (the distance between the points) using Pythagorean Theorem. Basically, this is where the formula for distance comes from.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

im not sure how to write it in radical form though?

OpenStudy (accessdenied):

Radical form is just like this: |dw:1338147839970:dw| Only, you'd simplify under the radical when you have actual numerical values.
