This calculator finds the distance between two points, (x

_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}), using the following formula:**Distance**= [ (x

_{2}-x

_{1})

^{2}+ (y

_{2}-y

_{1})

^{2}]

^{1/2}

To find the distance between two points, simply fill in the values below and then click the “Calculate” button.

Distance = **7.6158**

**Explanation:**

Distance = [ (x_{2}-x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2}-y_{1})^{2} ]^{1/2}

Distance = [ (5-(12))^{2} + (5-(2))^{2} ]^{1/2}

Distance = [ (49) + (9) ]^{1/2}

Distance = [58]^{1/2}

Distance = **7.6158**
