## JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-243 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to get the distance between two given points.

- Use Math.hypot() to calculate the Euclidean distance between two points.

**Sample Solution:**

**JavaScript Code:**

```
//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define a function 'distance' to calculate the Euclidean distance between two points in a 2D plane
const distance = (x0, y0, x1, y1) => Math.hypot(x1 - x0, y1 - y0);
// Test the 'distance' function with different pairs of points
console.log(distance(1, 1, 2, 3));
console.log(distance(-1, -1, 2, 3));
```

Output:
