<p><a target="_blank" href="https://www.prepswift.com/quizzes/quiz/prepswift-distance-between-two-points">Distance Between Two Points Exercise</a></p><p>If you're asked to find the distance between two points in the coordinate plane, you can use this formula.</p>
<p>To find the distance between the points $(a, b)$ and $(c,d)$, you can use the formula $\sqrt{(a-c)^2+(b-d)^2}$ </p>
<p>Example:</p>
<p>To find the distance between the points $(1,1)$ and $(3,4)$, you can do $\sqrt{(1-3)^2+(1-4)^2}=\sqrt{13}$.</p>
<p>An alternate and more intuitive way would be to sketch a right-angle triangle between the two points and figure out the hypotenuse.</p>
