# Find the Distance Between Two Points (-2,1) , (-10,7)

(-2,1) , (-10,7)
Use the distance formula to determine the distance between the two points.
Distance=(x2-x1)2+(y2-y1)2
Substitute the actual values of the points into the distance formula.
((-10)-(-2))2+(7-1)2
Simplify.
Multiply -1 by -2.
(-10+2)2+(7-1)2
(-8)2+(7-1)2
Raise -8 to the power of 2.
64+(7-1)2
Subtract 1 from 7.
64+62
Raise 6 to the power of 2.
64+36
