    Distance Formula

    I could with time work this one out but I am short of time so I thought I would ask you guys for help.

    the question is: Provide at least three examples of how the distance formula can be used in real-life situations.

    Thanks for your help.

    And for the third one, your brain uses it with your eyes to judge distances!

    EDIT: Oops, I saw the April 8th at the top of the post and thought that was today, not last year.
