Shortest distance between two points can be calculated, as under, if the coordinates of the two points are given:

Distance

Given

Coordinates of

Distance

**Since y coordinates are the same, distance #color(green)(AB = (-2 - (-3)) = 1)#**

Similarly, Distance

**Since x coordinates are the same, distance #color(blue)(AD = (-1 - (-3)) = 2)#**
