(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

When you have a point in [tex]\Re[/tex]^{3}, like for example let J(3, 7, 3) and Q(1, 2, 3). What is the distance in terms of coordinate between them? Like can you just subtract the corresponding components?

2. Relevant equations

I am not sure if it only works for the formula distance formula.

3. The attempt at a solution

Like what I meant was if I should try subtracting from J to Q to find (...)

J - Q = (2, 5, 0)

Does that work?

Thank you
