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

(-5,-1)(-5,-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.
((-5)-(-5))2+((-5)-(-1))2
Simplify.
Multiply -1 by -5.
(-5+5)2+((-5)-(-1))2
02+((-5)-(-1))2
Raising 0 to any positive power yields 0.
0+((-5)-(-1))2
Multiply -1 by -1.
0+(-5+1)2
0+(-4)2
Raise -4 to the power of 2.
0+16
