# 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, if its coordinates are given, using the distance formula.

## Answer: The length of the line segment that joins the points (2, 5) and (9, 8) is √58 units.

Let's look into the solution.

**Explanation:**

The 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
