#### Explanation:

The distance between two points can be calculated with the formula:

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

where:

Substitute your known values into the distance formula to find the distance between the two points:

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

#d=sqrt(((22)-(13))^2+((-4)-(-11))^2)#

#d=sqrt((9)^2+(7)^2)#

#d=sqrt(81+49)#

#d=sqrt(130)#
