Q:

What is the distance between (6, 2) and (-3, -2)?935

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Option A is correct.Step-by-step explanation:Distance between two points can be calculated from formula[tex]d = \sqrt {\left( {x_1 - x_2 } \right)^2 + \left( {y_1 - y_2 } \right)^2 }[/tex]Here x₁ = 6, y₁ = 2,xβ‚‚ = -3 and yβ‚‚ = -2Putting the values in the formula[tex]d = \sqrt{(-3-(6))^2+(-2-(2))^2}\\d = \sqrt{(-3-6)^2+(-2-2)^2} \\d = \sqrt{(-9)^2+(-4)^2} \\d = \sqrt{81+16}\\d = \sqrt{97}\\d= 9.85[/tex]So, the distance between points (6, 2) and (-3, -2) is 9.85 or β‰ˆ 9.So, Option A is correct.
