How do you find the distance between two points that have the same y-coordinate and lie in the same quadrant?

Accepted Solution

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:If the two points are ( 2, 1 ) and ( 3, 1 ) which have same y-coordinates lying in same quadrants.Distance between these points should be = [tex]\sqrt{(x-x')^{2}+(y-y')^{2}  }[/tex]= [tex]\sqrt{(3-2)^{2}+(1-1)^{2}  }[/tex]= [tex]\sqrt{1^{2}+0 }[/tex]= 1In other words if two points which lie in same quadrant and have same y- coordinates, distance between the points will be calculated by (x - x') = Difference in x coordinates.
