Let us assume (x1, y1) = (8, -4) and (x2, y2) = (8, -7)

Then distance between the given points = = = = = 3 units

Example: What is the distance between the points (-6, -1) and (2, 5)?

Let us assume (x1, y1) = (-6, -1) and (x2, y2) = (2, 5)

Then distance between the given points = = =  = = = 10 units
