# Find the Distance Between Two Points (-9,8) , (15,53)

(-9,8) , (15,53)
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.
(15-(-9))2+(53-8)2
Simplify.
Multiply -1 by -9.
(15+9)2+(53-8)2
242+(53-8)2
Raise 24 to the power of 2.
576+(53-8)2
Subtract 8 from 53.
576+452
Raise 45 to the power of 2.
576+2025
