Calculates the distance between two points in any number of dimensions.
Array.prototype.map()to map each coordinate to its difference between the two points.
Math.hypot()to calculate the Euclidean distance between the two points.
const euclideanDistance = (a, b) => Math.hypot(...Object.keys(a).map(k => b[k] - a[k]));
euclideanDistance([1, 1], [2, 3]); // ~2.2361 euclideanDistance([1, 1, 1], [2, 3, 2]); // ~2.4495
