The Distance Between Two Points the linear distance between two points in a plane. The points are identified as the X and Y coordinates of P1 and P2.Triangle(points).png Points on a Graph

INSTRUCTIONS:  Enter the following:

  • (P1)  This is the X and Y value for point 1 (e.g.  3.3  5.6)
  • (P2)  This is the X and Y value for point 2. (e.g. 7.9  2.3)

Distance: The calculator returns the distance between the points.  It assumes the units for the distance are the same units for the output.
