1. The distance between the two points is 8.9 units.

(8, 15, 17) is a Pythagorean triplet.

Step-by-step explanation:

Find the distance between (-5, -8) and (-1, -16).

Given points are;

(-5,-8) and (-1,-16) Distance =  Rounding off to nearest tenth,

Distance = 8.9 units

The distance between the two points is 8.9 units.

Which of the following is a Pythagorean triplet?

We will apply pythagoras theorem on these sets to determine pythagorean triplet.

a²+b²=c²

(8, 15, 17)

a=8, b=15, c=17 The given set is a Pythagorean triplet.

(2, 3, 5)

a=2, b=3, c=5 The given set is not a Pythagorean triplet.

(5, 7, 9)

a=5, b=7, c=9 The given set is not a Pythagorean triplet.

(6, 9, 11)

a=6, b=9, c=11 The given set is not a pythagorean triplet.

(8, 15, 17) is a Pythagorean triplet.
