This is another way to look at the distance between two points or the length of the line segment in Geometry. Graph the two points on an x-y-coordinate plane. Sketch a right triangle with the line segment as the hypotenuse of the right triangle. Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the segment or the distance between the points.
