Distance between two points Formula

Distance between two points:
√(x2-x1)2 + (y2-y1)2

Distance, in other words is termed as farness. In simple terms, distance is a measure of the interval between two locations. Distance between two points is the measurement of the distance between two points of the xy-plane can be calculated by the given co-ordinates on the plane x and y.
Examples:
Find the distance between the points (-1, 1), (-2, 2).
x1 = -1, y1 = 1 and
x2 = -2, y2 = 2

Apply Formula and substitute the values:
√(x2-x1)2 + (y2-y1)2
= √(-2- (1))2 + (2-1)2
=√(-2+1)2+(1)2
=√(-1)2+(1)2
=√1+1
=√2

Distance = 1.414
