# Find the distance between the points (0, 0) and (36, 15). Can you now find the distance between the two towns A and B discussed in Section 7.2

**Solution:**

The distance between the two points can be measured using the Distance Formula which is given by: Distance Formula = √ [(x_{2 - }x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} - y_{1})^{2}]

Let the points be A(0, 0) and B(36, 15)

Hence, x_{1} = 0, y_{1} = 0, x_{2} = 36, y_{2} = 15

We know that the distance between the two points is given by the Distance Formula,

= √ [(x_{2 - }x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} - y_{1})^{2}]....(1)

= √ [(0 - 36)^{2} + (0 - 15)^{2}]

= √ [(1296) + (225)]

= √1521

= 39

Yes, it is possible to find the distance between the given towns A and B.

The positions of towns A & B are given by (0, 0) and (36, 15), hence, as calculated above, the distance between town A and B will be 39 km.
