# Find the Distance Between Two Points (5,1) , (5,-6)

(5,1)(5,-6)
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+((-6)-1)2
Simplify.
Subtract 5 from 5.
02+((-6)-1)2
Raising 0 to any positive power yields 0.
0+((-6)-1)2
Subtract 1 from -6.
0+(-7)2
Raise -7 to the power of 2.
0+49
Add 0 and 49.
49
Rewrite 49 as 72.
72
Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.
