# How do you use the distance formula to find the distance of G(=6.24, 5), H(-3.75, 2)?

Distance$G - H = 10.431$

#### Explanation:

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

$d = \sqrt{{\left(6.24 - \left(- 3.75\right)\right)}^{2} + {\left(5 - 2\right)}^{2}}$

$d = \sqrt{{\left(9.99\right)}^{2} + {\left(3\right)}^{2}}$

d=sqrt((99.8+9)

$d = \sqrt{108.8}$

$d = 10.431$= distance G-H
