# Distance Formula Worksheets

What is the Distance Formula? The distance formula is a useful tool to find the distance between two arbitrarily points. The formula is divided from the Pythagoras theorem which is the a2 + b2 = c2, where c is the longest side of a right-angled triangle. Suppose you are given two points (-2, 1) and (1, 5), which are located on different locations of the axes. In the present example, the x coordinate is on the negative x-axis, and the ordinate is on the positive y-axis. While both of the coordinates like on the positive side of the x and y-axis.
