read the question again. "The line joining the two points has length .....". To find the length of the line you need to find the difference in y and difference in x. imagine a triangle or draw it out. to go from one point to the other you need to go a certain amount sideways and a certain amount up or down. once you know the length of the x and y direction, you use pythag to find the length of the line
