The **Distance Between Two Points ** calculator computes the linear distance between two points in a plane.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- (
**X**) This is the X and Y values for point 1 (e.g. 3.3 5.6)_{1}, Y_{1} - (
**X**) This is the X and Y values for point 2. (e.g. 7.9 2.3)_{2}, Y_{2}

**Distance between Points (D):** The calculator returns the distance between the points. It assumes the units for the distance are the same units for the output.

#### The Math / Science

The formula for the distance between two points is:

`D = sqrt( (X_1 - X_2)^2 + (Y_1 -Y_2)^2)`

where:

- D is the distance between the two points.
- X
_{1}is the x coordinate of point 1 - X
_{2}is the x coordinate of point 2 - Y
_{1}is the y coordinate of point 1 - Y
_{2}is the y coordinate of point 2
