Answer:|EF|=9 Units

|GF|=2 Units

Step-by-step explanation:To use absolute values of coordinates to find the distances between points, follow these steps

same quadrant, subtractthe absolute values of the two numbersdifferent quadrants, addthe absolute values of the two numbers|EF|E(5, 3), F(–4, 3)

The y-coordinate have the same value (3).

The other coordinate, 5 and -4 are in different quadrant, so we add.

|EF|=|5|+|-4|=9 Units

|GF|F(–4, 3), G(–4, 5).

The x-coordinate have the same value (-4).

The other coordinates, 3 and 5 are in the same quadrant, so we subtract.

|GF|=|5|-|3|=2 Units
