You are given two co-ordinates (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) of a two dimensional graph. Find the distance between them.
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
We can get above formula by simply applying Pythagoras theorem
Below is the implementation of above idea.
