#### Answer:

11, 11 is 11x +11y and

-13,8 is -13x +8y

#### Explanation:

If you plot this on a Cartesian x-y graph you will see that there is right angled triangle, formed by the equation

11x +13x and 11y - 8y resulting in a triangle 24x and 3y.

since we are interested in the distance only, we deal only with the absolute values.

distance d is then

d =

d =
