6-43.

On graph paper, draw $\overline{AC}$ with coordinates $A(2, 6)$ and $C(5, −1)$. Then draw a slope triangle. Use the slope triangle to calculate the length of $\overline{AC}$. Consider the precision of the measurement.

One leg is $3$ units long, the other leg is $7$ units long. You will need the Pythagorean Theorem.
Review the Math Notes box in section 4.1.1 if you need further help with the Pythagorean Theorem.
