Find the distance between each pair of points: a) 0 , - 3 and 4, 0 c) 3, 2 and 5 , - 2 b) - 2, 5 and 4 , - 3 d) a , 0 and 0 , b

To determine

(a)

To find:

The distance between points 0,-3 and 4, 0.

Explanation

The distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) can be determined by,

d=(x2-x1)2+(y2-y1)2

From the given points 0,-3 and 4, 0,

x1=0

y1=-3

x2=4

y2=0

Substitute these values in the distance formula,

d=(x2-x1)2+(y2-

To determine

(b)

To find:

The distance between points -2, 5 and 4,-3.

To determine

(c)

To find:

The distance between points 3, 2 and 5,-2.

To determine

(d)

To find:

The distance between points a,0 and 0,b.
