- Distance formula (distance between 2 points, vertical distance, horizontal distance)Choice J
**Step 1: notice that the points have the same y coordinate -3, and therefore are on the same horizontal line****Step 2: find the distance by finding the difference between the x coordinates**$$ Distance=5\frac{1}{3}-(-1\frac{5}{9}) $$

$$ =5\frac{3}{9}+1\frac{5}{9} $$

$$ =(5+1)+\frac{3+5}{9} $$

$$ =6\frac{8}{9} $$
