Distance between two points can be determined by checking the coordinates of the ordered pair plotted in the graph. This formula has been derived from the Pythagorean Theorem.
For horizontal lines and vertical lines, the distance is determined by checking their difference.
In identifying the distance of two points, you need to have the coordinates of the ordered pairs as plotted in the graph. The coordinates of the points are composed of two numbers each that signifies their location in the graph.
Example: (4, 1); (3, 5)
