To calculate: The closer point among and to the point .
Thecloser point tothe point is .
The points and .
Distance between two points in the Cartesian plane is denoted by .
Consider the provided set of points and . Also the point .
Recall that the distance between two points in the Cartesian plane is denoted by .
Evaluate the distance between and .
Next evaluate the distance between and .
Observe that .
That is the distance between the point and the is less than the distance the point and the .
Therefore, the point is near to .
Thus, the closer point to the point is .
