# Find the length of the line segment that joins the points (2, 5) and (9, 8).

The length of a line segment can be easily calculated provided their coordinates are given using the distance formula.

## Answer: The distance between (2, 5) and (9, 8) will be √58 units.

Let's look into the solution.

**Explanation:**

Length of the line segment between points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) is calculated using the distance formula

d = √(x_{2} - x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} - y_{1})^{2}

(x_{1}, y_{1}) = (2,5) and (x_{2}, y_{2}) = (9, 8)

Substituting the values in the above formula we get,

d = √(9 - 2)^{2} + (8 - 5)^{2}

d = √49 + 9

d = √58 units
