# Find the distance between the points with coordinates (-26, 0) and (95, 0)?

121

#### Explanation:

To find the distance between two points, you must use the Distance Formula:

The distance between the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is equal to sqrt((x2-x1)^2 +(y2-y1)^2.

x1 = -26
y1 = 0
x2 = 95
y2 = 0

All we need to do is plug these values into the equation and solve! sqrt((95-(-26)^2 +(0-0)^2
 =sqrt((95+26)^2 + 0
$= 95 + 26 = 121$

The distance between your two points is 121!

$121$ units.

#### Explanation:

The distance between two points is found by the formula -

$d = \sqrt{{\left({x}_{1} - {x}_{2}\right)}^{2} + {\left({y}_{1} - {y}_{2}\right)}^{2}}$

So

$d = \sqrt{{\left(- 26 - 95\right)}^{2} + {\left(0 - 0\right)}^{2}}$

$d = \sqrt{{\left(- 121\right)}^{2} + 0}$

$d = \sqrt{{121}^{2}}$

$d = {\left(121\right)}^{\frac{1}{2} \times 2}$

$d = 121$
