Look at points C and D on the graph: Coordinate grid shown from negative 6 to positive 6 in increments of 1 on both the axes. A line is drawn by connecting point C at negative 2, 0 and point D at 3, 5 What is the distance (in units) between points C and D? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

Accepted Solution

Let's see...
[tex]d= \sqrt{(3-(-2))^{2} + (5-0)^2} \\ d=\sqrt{(5)^{2}+(5)^{2}} \\ d=\sqrt{25+25} \\ d=\sqrt{50} \\ d=7.071, or 7.07[/tex]
