Solutions

Chapter B, Problem 2E
To determine

To find: The distance between the given points.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 2E

The distance between the points is 229.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The points are (1,3),(5,7).

Formula used:

The distance between the points P1(x1,y1) and P2(x2,y2)is|P1P2|=(x2x1)2+(y2y1)2

Calculation:

Let the given points be,

(x1,y1)=(1,3) and (x2,y2)=(5,7).

Use the above mentioned formula to find the distance between the points

|P1P2|=(51)2+(7(3))2=(4)2+(7+3)2=(4)2+(10)2=16+100

On further simplification, the equation becomes,

|P1P2|=116=4×29=4×29=229

Thus, the equation for x for the given modulus function is 229.
