#### Explanation:

To calculate the distance between the 2 points use the 3-d version of the

#color(blue)" distance formula " #

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(d =sqrt((x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2+(z_2-z_1)^2))color(white)(a/a)|)))# where

#(x_1,y_1,z_1) " and " (x_2,y_2,z_2)" are 2 coord points "# let

# (x_1,y_1,z_1)=(2,3,5)" and " (x_2,y_2,z_2)=(2,7,4)#

#rArr d = sqrt((2-2)^2+(7-3)^2+(4-5)^2#

# = sqrt(0+16+1) = sqrt17 #
