# What is the distance between #(5 ,( pi)/4 )# and #(3 , (11 pi )/6 )#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

To solve this, you need the distance formula between two points which is:

where the first point is

and the second point is

To understand the derivation of this formula follow this link.

It doesn't matter which point is the first point or second point. The difference will always be the same, and when you square the difference in the equation, the negative difference will go away.

E.g. Say

When you square the

Now plug in the two points from the problem.
