What did you try?
I used (x2-x1)*2 + (y2-y1)*2 square rooted and got

AB= root10
BC =5 root2
AC= 2 root 20

Yep you got those right, but you don't need AC as it's not a side of a kite. What can you do for part b, do you think?
5. Make a rough graph, place the vertices and draw the lines connecting the vertices to form the kits. That should help.
6. I managed to figure it out, thanks for the help.
