# Find the Distance Between Two Points (-3,8) , (1,5)

(-3,8)(1,5)
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.
(1-(-3))2+(5-8)2
Simplify.
Multiply -1 by -3.
(1+3)2+(5-8)2
42+(5-8)2
Raise 4 to the power of 2.
16+(5-8)2
Subtract 8 from 5.
16+(-3)2
Raise -3 to the power of 2.
