## What is Cartesian Coordinate Distance?

In mathematics, Cartesian coordinates are a system that allows us to describe the position of a point in space using numerical values. The distance between two points in a Cartesian coordinate system is calculated using the Pythagorean theorem. The Pythagorean theorem states that the square of the hypotenuse (the longest side) of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

## How to Use the Cartesian Coordinate Distance Calculator

1. Enter the x and y coordinates of the first point in the calculator.
2. Enter the x and y coordinates of the second point in the calculator.

Our calculator will automatically calculate the distance between the two points and display it in the output box.

## The Formula for Cartesian Coordinate Distance

The formula for calculating the distance between two points in a Cartesian coordinate system is:

where:

• d is the distance between the two points
• x1 and y1 are the coordinates of the first point
• x2 and y2 are the coordinates of the second point

## Example

Suppose we want to calculate the distance between the points (3, 4) and (7, 9).

1. Enter the x and y coordinates of the first point, (3, 4), into the calculator.
2. Enter the x and y coordinates of the second point, (7, 9), into the calculator.

The distance between the two points is 6.4 units.
