## Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Point 1 (say A) =( 5√6, √2)

Point 2 (say B) = ( -√6, 5√2)

Distance AB is found by using the distance formula:

√(x2 – x1)² + ( y2-y1)²

=  √[( 5√6 - (- √6)] ² +[( √2 - 5√2 ] ²

=√[( 6√6 ) ² +[(  - 4√2 ] ²

=√( 36 * 6 + 16 *2)

=√( 216 + 32)

=√( 216 + 32)

==√248

=√ (144 *2)

=12√2

= 16.971 to 3 decimal places

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
