Answer:

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!

Answer:

#121# units.

Explanation:

The distance between two points is found by the formula -

#d= sqrt[(x_1 - x_2)^2 + (y_1 - y_2)^2]#

So

#d =sqrt[(-26-95)^2 + (0-0)^2]#

#d=sqrt[(-121)^2 +0]#

#d=sqrt(121^2)#

#d=(121)^(1/2xx2)#

#d =121#
