To calculate the distance between these two points, we use the Pythagorean theorem since the two points can form a right triangle when plotted where the hypotenuse would be the distance between these two. We do as follows: d = √[(x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2] d = √[(3-1)^2 + (9-4)^2] d = √29 = 5.39 units The correct answer is A.
