**Find the distance between the pair of points with the given coordinates$\left(1,-14\right)\text{and}\left(-6,10\right)$.**

The distance between the given pair of points is** $25\text{units}$.**

The given pair of points have coordinates $\left(1,-14\right)\text{and}\left(-6,10\right)$.

If a line segment has end-points at $\left({x}_{1},{y}_{1}\right)\text{and}\left({x}_{2},{y}_{2}\right)$ then the distance$\left(d\right)$ between these points is given as:

$\left|d\right|=\sqrt{{\left({x}_{2}-{x}_{1}\right)}^{2}+{\left({y}_{2}-{y}_{1}\right)}^{2}}\mathrm{....}\left(1\right)$

The distance $\left(d\right)$between the pair of points with given coordinates $\left(1,-14\right)\text{and}\left(-6,10\right)$ is evaluated using the formula (1) stated above.

$\begin{array}{c}\left|d\right|=\sqrt{{\left({x}_{2}-{x}_{1}\right)}^{2}+{\left({y}_{2}-{y}_{1}\right)}^{2}}\\ =\sqrt{{\left(-6-1\right)}^{2}+{\left(10+14\right)}^{2}}\\ =\sqrt{{\left(-7\right)}^{2}+{\left(24\right)}^{2}}\\ =25\text{units}\end{array}$The distance between the given pair of points is $25\text{units}$.
