# Distance Between Two Points Calculator

Enter coordinates of the points and let the calculator calculate distance among them, with the steps shown.

First Point

Second Point

Our accurate distance between two points calculator will find distance between two points on a 2D coordinate plane.

## What Is the Distance Between Two Points?

A particular line on a cartesian coordinate plane that allows two points to connect with each other is called distance among 2 points. There is another distance formula calculator that will let you find distance even among 3 points.

### How To Find Distance Between Two Points On a Graph?

Let us suppose we have the following two points: $$\left(2, 8\right)$$ $$\left(4, 9\right)$$ Now finding distance between two points: $$d = \sqrt {\left(x_{2} - x_{1}\right)^{2} + \left(y_{2} - y_{1}\right)^{2}}$$ $$d = \sqrt {\left(4 - 2\right)^{2} + \left(9 - 8\right)^{2}}$$ $$d = \sqrt {\left(2\right)^{2} + \left(1\right)^{2}}$$ $$d = \sqrt {4 + 1}$$ $$d = \sqrt {5}$$ $$d = 2.236$$
