C# C# Objects Methods Static vs Instance Methods

Wouldn't it be better if we use a Point parameter in the DistanceTo method?

You're getting ahead of the class here. In a few more videos, the concept of "overloading" will be introduced and another version of the DistanceTo method will be created which does take a single Point parameter.

But great thinking! I'll bet you're on your way to being an excellent developer!
