Hello everyone

I have the following code that calculate the distance between two points x(0,1) and y(0,1) but I don't get the answer

Python:
def distance(x, y):
dist = math.sqrt((x[0] - y[0]) ** 2 + (x[1] - y[1]) ** 2 )
return dist

print(distance((0,0),(1,1)))
Please can anyone help me correct this error?

What is the error? What do you get?

If that's your entire program you're missing the "import math" at the top. Aside from that I don't know what you're expecting that isn't working.
