• 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

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

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

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

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