Thank you!Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!what you have is a right triangle with sides (4+2)=6 in the y direction & (1+3)=4 in the x direction. seeing as we're looking for the hypotenuse of this right triangle we use the pythagorean therom:a^2+b^2=c^2 6^2+4^2=c^2 36+16=c^2 c^2=52 c=sqrt52 c=7.21 is the distance between these 2 points. ------------------------------------------------ OR C=SQRT52=SQRT(4*13)=2SQRT(13) THIS IS THE SAME ANSWER IN A DIFFERENT FORM.
