Q:
# Please help Question 2 (Fill-In-The-Blank Worth 3 points) (04.04) Point R is at (2, 1.2) and Point T is at (2, 2.5) on a coordinate grid. The distance between the two points is ____. (Input numbers and decimal point only, such as 8.2.) Answer for Blank 1:

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The length between the two points is RT = 1.3 unitsStep-by-step explanation:The coordinates of the point R and T are R(2,1.2) and T(2,2.5).Now, by DISTANCE FORMULA:The distance between two coordinates P and Q with coordinate P(a,b) and Q(c,d) is given as:[tex]PQ = \sqrt{(a-c)^2 + (b-d)^2}[/tex]So, here the distance RT = [tex]\sqrt{(2-2)^2 + (2.5 - 1.2)^2} = \sqrt{0^2 + (1.3)^2} = 1.3[/tex]or, RT = 1.3 unitsHence, the length between the two points is RT = 1.3 units
