Given:

Two points $(0,5)$ and $(-5,0)$

To do:

We have to find the distance between the points.

Solution:

We know that,

If there two points $( {x_{1},\ y_{1})\ and\ ( x_2},\ y_{2})$, then

The distance between the two points $=\sqrt{(x_{2}-x_{1})^{2}+(y_{2}-y_{1})^{2}}$

Here, $x_{1}=0,\ y_{1}=5,\ x_{2}=-5\ and\ y_{2}=0$,

On substituting these value in formula,

Distance between the two points $=\sqrt{( -5-0)^{2}+(0-( 5))^{2}}$

$=\sqrt{( -5)^{2}+( -5)^{2}}$

$=\sqrt{25+25}$

$=\sqrt{50}$

$=5\sqrt2$

Therefore,

The distance between the points $(0,5)$ and $(-5,0)$ is $5\sqrt2$.
