Question

Find the distance between ( - 3, 4) and ( - 3, - 8)

  1. 4 units    
  2. 12 units    
  3. 8 units    
  4. 13 units    

Hint:

Distance is a numerical measurement of how far apart objects or points are.
Absolute value is the magnitude of a real number without regard to its sign. Also called modulus

The correct answer is: 12 units


    Step 1: If the x - coordinates are the same, we use the y - coordinates to find the distance.
    Step 2: Add absolute values of the coordinates to find the distance between the points since they lie in different quadrants.
    Step 3: ∣ 4 ∣ + ∣ - 8∣ = 4 + 8 = 12
