Ok??
If (-2,3)=(x1,y1) so where is x2 and y2??

x2 = 0;

y2 = 3;

Yes.  They are on the same horizontal line.

Re: Distance

Seems you are still a bit confused about the address of points on a graph.

Re: Distance

-2? Have you ever had to go someplace and said it was -4 km away? Did you try the distance formula on this problem? Your common sense and the the distance formula will show you that this distance is 2.

Re: Distance

First of all when you speak of the distance from A which is located at (-4,-4) which line do you think is the distance of A to the y axis?

Re: Distance

When you speak of distance to something we mean the shortest distance else any one of those line segments can apply.
