Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!d = sqrt((x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2) d = sqrt((3-21)^2+( 8-( -30))^2) d = sqrt((3-21)^2+( 8-( -30))^2) d = sqrt((-18)^2+(38)^2) d = sqrt(324+1444) d = sqrt(1768) d = 2*sqrt(442) So exact distance between the two points is 2*sqrt(442) units. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you need more help, email me at jim_thompson5910@hotmail.com Also, please consider visiting my website: http://www.freewebs.com/jimthompson5910/home.html and making a donation.
