Hi there, I will be very thankful to you if you can help me. I had written the following code to find the distance between two points on a graph through the distance formula, which is a topic of coordinate geometry just in case if you want to know more about it. (I am 14 years old so please don't be too frustrated about the poor quality of my code, sorry).

# The code was supposed to give the distance between two points on a graph through the distance formula # but whatever input I give, it always gives me an output of 0 # the Distance formula is d=√((x_2-x_1)²+(y_2-y_1)²) where (x_1, y_1) and (x_2, y_2) are points on graph firstP = input("Enter the coordinates of first point in form x,y -> ") firstC = firstP.split(",") x1 = int(firstC[0]) y1 = int(firstC[1]) secondP = input("Enter the coordinates of second point in form x,y -> ") secondC = firstP.split(",") x2 = int(secondC[0]) y2 = int(secondC[1]) print((((x1-x2)**2) + ((y1 - y2)**2))**(1/2))

```
Output:C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37\python.exe "C:/Users/admin/PycharmProjects/Maths Projects/Prototype1.py"
Enter the coordinates of first point in form x,y -> 1,2
Enter the coordinates of second point in form x,y -> 2,4
