    Please, normal English or I won't even try to understand what you're trying to say.

    double x = 6 - 4;
    double y = 3 - 5;
    double dist = Math.sqrt((x * x) + (y * y));

    You can use the Cartesian plane distance formula.

    distance = sqrt((x2 - x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2)

    In your case, distance can be found by...

    distance = sqrt((4-6)^2 + (5-3)^2)
    distance = 2.83

    Hope this helped!
