# Which is the correct formula to find the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d)?

We use the distance formula to calculate the distance between two given points whose coordinates are known to us.

## Answer:√(c - a)^{2} + (d - b)^{2} is the correct formula to find the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d).

Let's see what the distance formula is.

**Explanation: **

We know that the distance formula between two points is,

Distance formula = √((x_{2 }− x_{1})^{2}+(y_{2 }− y_{1})^{2})

We have given, coordinates two points are (a, b) and (c, d).

So, x_{1}= a, x_{2}= c, and y_{1}= b, y_{2}= d.

Now, put the values in the distance formula, we get, √(c - a)^{2}+(d - b)^{2}

We can calculate the distance for a different set of points by using a Distance formula calculator.
