science space and astronomy# How do you find the distance between two points on a graph?

**Steps**

- Take the coordinates of
**two points**you want**to**find the**distance between**. Call one**point Point**1(x1,y1) and make the other**Point**2 (x2,y2). - Know the
**distance**formula. - Find the horizontal and vertical
**distance between**the**points**. - Square both values.
- Add the squared values together.
- Take the square root of the equation.

Similarly, it is asked, what is the formula for distance between two points?

1. **Distance between two points** P(x1,y1) andQ(x2,y2) is given by: d(P, Q) = √ (x2 − x1)**2** +(y2 − y1)**2** {**Distance formula**} **2**.**Distance of** a **point** P(x, y) from the origin is givenby d(0,P) = √ x2 + y2. 3.

**complex number**a + bi is a +bi = a2 + b2. This is the

**distance between**the origin (0, 0)and the point (a, b) in the

**complex**plane. For

**two**points in the

**complex**plane, the

**distance between**thepoints is the modulus of the difference of the

**two complexnumbers**.

Moreover, what is the distance between two points called?

The shortest **distance between two points** is thelength of a so-**called** geodesic **between** the**points**. In the case of the sphere, the geodesic is a segmentof a great circle containing the **two points**.

To calculate the **slope** of a line you need onlytwo points from that line, (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). The equation usedto calculate the **slope** from two points is: On a graph, thiscan be represented as: There are three steps in calculating the**slope** of a straight line when you are not given itsequation.
