Program to calculate distance between two points

You are given two co-ordinates (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) of a two dimensional graph. Find the distance between them.

Examples:

Input : x1, y1 = (3, 4)
        x2, y2 = (7, 7)
Output : 5

Input : x1, y1 = (3, 4) 
        x2, y2 = (4, 3)
Output : 1.41421

We will use the distance formula derived from Pythagorean theorem. The formula for distance between two point (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is

Distance = $\sqrt{(x2-x1)^{2} + (y2-y1)^{2}}$

We can get above formula by simply applying Pythagoras theorem

Below is the implementation of above idea.
