Distance between two coordinate points coderinme

The distance formula is derived from the Pythagorean theorem. To find the distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), all that you need to do is use the coordinates of these ordered pairs and apply the formula

Given two points P1 (x1,y1) and P2(x2,y2) on a Cartesian plane, distance between them is calculated using the formula:

D = sqrt((x1-x2)2+(y1-y2)2)

Now let’s code it in C

```
#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
float x1,x2,y1,y2,Dist;
printf("Enter the value of x1: ");
scanf("%f",x1);
printf("Enter the value of y1: ");
scanf("%f",&y1);
printf("Enter the value of x2: ");
scanf("%f",&x2);
printf("Enter the value of y2: ");
scanf("%f",&y2);
Dist=sqrt( ( x1 - x2 ) * ( x1 - x2 ) + ( y1 - y2 ) * ( y1 - y2 ) );
printf("The distance between the points (%.2f,%.2f) and (%.2f,%.2f): %.2f",x1,y1,x2,y2,Dist);
getch();
return 0;
}
```
