Write the answer in radical form.Answer by doukungfoo(195)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!To find the distance between two points you can use the distance formula. Ok so the first point is (-4,0) lets plug these numbers into the formula: The second point is (-5,-3) put these numbers into the formula: now we have a formula with one variable to solve for lets do it. first do all operations in the innermost parentheses next square each number 10 doesn't have an exact squareroot and the question tells us to express the answer in radical form. so the distance between the two points is
