I dont get it It says: use the Pythagorean theorem to find the distance between each pair of points ``` C(-10,2) D(-7,6) Draw in these two green lines and you have a right triangle Now you can count the number of units in the two green lines, which are the two legs of the right triangle and the hypotenuse of the right triangle is the distance between the two points. The bottom side of the triangle is 3 units in length. The right side of the triangle is 4 units in length. So we use the Pythagorean theorem: So the line CD is 5 units long Edwin```
