Answer:

The distance between #(7,3)# and #(-1,-4)# is #10.63#.

Explanation:

The distance between two points #(x _1,y_1)# and #(x _2,y_2)# is given by

#sqrt((x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2)#.

Hence distance between #(7,3)# and #(-1,-4)# is

#sqrt((-1-7)^2+(-4-3)^2)#

= #sqrt((-8)^2+(-7)^2)#

= #sqrt(64+49)#

= #sqrt113=10.63#
