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 P_{1} and P_{2}.* Points on a Graph*

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

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

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