#### Answer

$d\approx 6.40
\text{ units}
$

#### Work Step by Step

Using $d=\sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2}$ or the Distance Formula, then the distance, $d$, between the given points $(
-7,-5
)$ and $(
-2,-1
)$ is
\begin{array}{l}\require{cancel}
d=\sqrt{(-7-(-2))^2+(-5-(-1))^2}
\\\\
d=\sqrt{(-7+2)^2+(-5+1)^2}
\\\\
d=\sqrt{(-5)^2+(-4)^2}
\\\\
d=\sqrt{25+16}
\\\\
d=\sqrt{41}
\\\\
d\approx 6.40
\text{ units}
.\end{array}
