to calculate the hypotenuse, which is what the Pythagorean Thereom does, you need two legs of a right triangle, which you've been given. The legs are the distance between the x points and the y points from each data set.

X leg = -2 to 1 (distance of 3 units)

Y leg = -6 to -2 (distance of 4 units)

a (sq) + b (sq) = c (sq)

(3x3) + (4x4) = c (sq)

9 + 16 = c (sq)

25 = c (sq)

5 = c

use the distance formula (x2-x1)+(y2-Y1)

horizontal distance is 3. vertical distance is 4. use the equation and solve for the diagonal. the answer will be 5.
