Enter the x and y coordinates of both end points of a line to calculate the distance between those two points.
The distance between two points on the x and y plane is calculated through the following formula:
D = Square Root ( X2-X1)^2 + (Y2-Y1)^2)
Where (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are the points on the coordinate plane.
Not to be confused with the midpoint of a line, the distance measures the units between two points.
The distance between two points in the x,y, and z plane can also be calculated through a similar formula.
D = Square Root ( X2-X1)^2 + (Y2-Y1)^2) + (Z2-Z1)^2)
Where (x1,y1,z1) and (x2,y2,z2) are the points on the 3 dimensional coordinate plane.
