What is the distance, in units, between the points $$(2, -6)$$ and $$(-4, 3)$$? Express your answer in the simplest radical form.

Sep 4, 2022

Using the distance formula,$$\sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2},$$ we substitue them in to get $$\sqrt{(2-(-4))^2+(-6-3)^2},$$ which simplifies to $$\sqrt{36+81}=\sqrt{117}=\boxed{3\sqrt13.}$$
