Java Program to Calculate Distance between Two Points

You have given two points with coordinates (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). Write a Java program to find the distance between these two points.

We can find the distance between two points using the distance formula.

Distance = sqrt((x2-x1) ^ 2 + (y2-y1) ^ 2)

Example 1:
Input: (x1,y1) = (3,4)
           (x2, y2) = (7, 7)
Output: 5

Java Program: 

// Java program to find distance between two points

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
	
	public static void main(String[] args) { 
		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		
		int x1, y1, x2, y2;
		
		// take inputs
		System.out.println("Enter x1: ");
		x1 = sc.nextInt();
		System.out.println("Enter y1: ");
		y1 = sc.nextInt();
		
		System.out.println("Enter x2: ");
		x2 = sc.nextInt();
		System.out.println("Enter y2: ");
		y2 = sc.nextInt();
		
		// find distance using distance formula
		double distance = Math.sqrt(((x2-x1) * (x2-x1)) + ((y2-y1) * (y2-y1)));
		System.out.println("Distance between (" + x1 + "," + y1 + ") and (" + x2 + "," + y2 + ") => " + distance);
		
		sc.close();
	}

}

Output: 

Enter x1: 
3
Enter y1: 
4
Enter x2: 
7
Enter y2: 
7
Distance between (3,4) and (7,7) => 5.0
