Distance Between Two Points Formula 
For find the Distance Between Two Points use the distance formula: 


In the formula, the x’s and y’s represent the numbers from two points on a coordinate plane

It does not matter which point is first and which one is second—the answer will be the same

The following example calculates the distance between the points (0, 2) and (8, 4)


 The distance between the points (0, 2) and (8, 4) is 10

The distance between two points on a coordinate plane, is also finding the length of a segment that connects the two points.
