Distance Formula
What is the distance between the points http://homework.math.ucsb.edu/webwor...c617e5de71.png and http://homework.math.ucsb.edu/webwor...bfba8d9dd1.png

I keep getting the square root of 3990, which apparently is wrong?

The distance formula is:

$
D = \sqrt {(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$

$
$
$D=67$
