# Distance Formula Worksheets

Our printable distance formula worksheets are a must-have resource to equip grade 8 and high school students with the essential practice tools to find the distance between two points. Gain an edge over your peers by memorizing the distance formula d = √((x_{2} - x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2} - y_{1})^{2}). The pdfs provide ample opportunities to apply the formula not just to find the distance between two points on coordinate planes, but also to identify the types of triangles and quadrilaterals, to find the perimeter of shapes, to mention just a few.

Finding the Distance between Two Points | Integers

With an example to guide you, our printable finding the distance between two points worksheets help ease into the distance formula. Just plug the coordinates, and find the distance.

Finding the Distance between Two Points | Fractions

The introduction of fractional coordinates in our distance formula worksheets gives a new lease of life to your practice in applying the formula, and computing how far two points are.

Finding the Side Length of Shapes

Is it the radius of a circle or the side length of a rectangle that you need to find? Assign the coordinates of the endpoints in the distance formula, and determine the length in a jiffy!

Instruct high school students to rearrange the distance formula, make the missing coordinate the subject, and equate it with the given distance to solve these distance formula worksheet pdfs.

Distance Formula and Pythagorean Theorem

The distance formula is a variant of the Pythagorean theorem. Sketch a right triangle with the segment as the hypotenuse. Find the length of the legs, and use the formula to find the distance.

Identifying the Types of Triangles

Decide whether the triangle formed using the given vertices is a scalene, equilateral, isosceles, or right triangle. Substitute the points in the distance formula, and find the side length to prove.

Identifying the Types of Quadrilaterals

Knowing the properties of quadrilaterals is a prerequisite. Use the formula to find the side lengths and prove if the coordinates are vertices of a square, rectangle, parallelogram, or rhombus.

Perimeter on a Coordinate Plane

Graph the coordinates of the endpoints on the x-y plane, join them to create a shape, substitute the coordinates of the side lengths in the formula, add up the lengths to find the perimeter.

With these worksheets, you are in for a blend of finding the midpoints and the distance. Students are expected to find the point at equidistant and use its coordinates to find the distance.

Whether it is the distance between two points of a diagonal, chord or tangent, our distance formula worksheet pdfs accentuate the conceptual knowledge of high school students.

Upskill with our printable worksheets featuring line segments drawn on coordinate planes for 8th grade students to determine the coordinates, use the formula, and calculate the distance.
