Question

What is the distance between points (5, 5) and (1, 5) on a coordinate plane?

  1. - 4    
  2. 4    
  3. 10    
  4. - 10    

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: 4


    Step 1: If the y-coordinates are the same, we use the x - coordinates to find the distance.
    Step 2: Subtract absolute values of the coordinates to find the distance between the points since they lie in the same quadrants.
    Step 3: ∣ 5 ∣ - ∣ 1 ∣ = 5 – 1 = 4
