    The order in which you write x- and y-coordinates in an ordered pair is very important. The x-coordinate always comes first, followed by the y-coordinate.

    M is located at X = -2 and Y = 3.  R is located at X = -4 and Y = - 2

    (-2,3) (-4-2)

    To find the distance between the two points:

    Take the Absolute Difference between the two X points -2 and -4 = 2

    Take the Absolute Difference between the two Y points 3 and -2 = 5

    Square 2 = 4

    Square 5 = 25

    Add 4 + 25 = 29

    Square root of 29 = 5.385165   Rounded 5.4

    The rise is 5 and the run is 2

    D=sqrt(5^2+2^2)=sqrt(25+4)=sqrt(29)=5.385

    No conclusion, since more information about

    the coordinates system is needed.

    Use the distance formula.

    D = √[(x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2]

    D = √[(-4 - (-2))^2 + (-2 - 3)^2]

    D = 5.38516 or 5.4

    Answer is 5.4

    Notice that you have to go 2 over and 5 up to get from point R to point M.

    Imagine a right triangle with legs of 2 and 5. The hypotenuse will be the direct distance between those points.

    2² + 5² = c²

    4 + 25 = c²

    c² = 29

    c = √29

    c ≈ 5.4

    The next figure shows how the plane intersecting the double cone results in each curve. ... Use the rectangular coordinate system to find the distance between ... a2+b2=c2 ... The distance d between the two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is ... the decimal approximation, rounded to the nearest tenth if needed.

    M(-2, 3) and R(-4, -2)

    Observe differences in x and y coordinatesD^2 = 2^2 + 5^2D ~ 5.4

    R = ( -4,-2) & M = (-2,3) 

    Use Pythagoras, 

    d^2 = (-2--4)^2 + ( 3--2)^2

    d^2 = (2^2 + 5^2) 

    d^2 = 4 + 25 

    d^2 = 29 

    d = sqrt(29) 

    d = 5.385... ~ 5.4 (Red rectangle)

    I guess using the formula for it?
