The distance formula indicates that distance is equal to the square root of {x(sub 2) - x(sub 1)} (squared) {y (sub 2) - y (sub 1)} (squared). The "x" and "y" values reflect the respective horizontal and vertical coord... More »

The 3D, or three-dimensional distance formula is the square root of the sum of the square of the difference between each coordinate point. In a three-dimensional plane, the coordinates are generally written with the vari... More »

People use the Pythagorean Theorem and distance formula to determine length in a variety of everyday situations, including the purchase a family television set, the creation of code for collision detection in a video gam... More »

Use the distance formula and a calculator to find the distance between two points. The distance formula works because if two points are plotted on a graph, their direct line is the hypotenuse of a right triangle; thus, t... More »
