The distance $d$ from the point $(2,-3)$ to the point $(5,1)$ is ______.

$5$

We have provided two points and we have to find the distance between them.

Points are:

$(2,-3),(5,1)$

Formula for finding the distance between the two points is:

$d=\sqrt{{({y}_{2}-{y}_{1})}^{2}+{({x}_{2}-{x}_{1})}^{2}}$

Therefore,

$d=\sqrt{(1-{(-3))}^{2}+{(5-2)}^{2}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}d=\sqrt{{4}^{2}+{3}^{2}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}d=\sqrt{25}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}d=5$
