Given: 

Points $A( 0,\ 6)$ and $B ( 0,\ -2)$.

To do: 

We have to find the distance between the given points.

Solution: 

As given,  Points $A( 0,\ 6)$ and $B ( 0,\ -2)$

Distance between the points $AB=\sqrt{( x_2-x_1)^2+( y_2-y_1)^2}$

$\Rightarrow AB=\sqrt{( 0-0)^2+( -2-6)^2}$

$\Rightarrow AB=\sqrt{0+( -8)^2}$

$\Rightarrow AB=\sqrt{64}$

$\Rightarrow AB=8\ units$

Thus, the distance between the given points is $8\ units$.
