What is the distance between the points (2, 3) and (7, 4)?

The distance between these points is ##sqrt(26)## or 5.1 rounded to the nearest tenth.

The formula for calculating the distance between two points is:

##d = sqrt((x_2 – x_1)^2 + (y_2 – y_1)^2)##

Substituting the points we are provided and solving gives:

##d = sqrt((7 – 2)^2 + (4 – 3)^2)##

##d = sqrt(5^2 + 1^2)##

##d = sqrt(25 + 1)##

##d = sqrt(26)##
