Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Using the formula for calculating the distance between two points as shown;

D = √(x2-x1)²²+(y2-y1)²

Given the coordinates (-2, 4) and (10,2)

x1 = -2, y1 = 4, x2 = 10 and y2 = 2

substitute into the formula;

D = √(10+2)²+(2-4)²

D = √(12²+(-2)²

D = √144+4

D = √148

D = 12.17 unitsHence the distance of Mac,s house from Nate’s house is 12.17 units
