Location 1
Latitude (deg) Longitude (deg)
23.254713123 87.846916806
Location 2
Latitude (deg) Longitude (deg)
23.254712039 87.846917766
Find out the distance of this two locations (in 5 decimal places)?

This is pretty easy if you have the Mapping Toolbox:
>> [xNorth, xEast, xDown] = geodetic2ned(23.254712039, 87.846917766, 0, 23.254713123, 87.846916806, 0, wgs84Ellipsoid)
xNorth =
-0.120050380608287
xEast =
0.098235995816677
xDown =
2.156363788918814e-09
You can also use the Aerospace Toolbox to do this in a similar way using lla2ned.

If you wanted the distance between the two locations in your question, calculate the square root of the sum of the squares. sqrt(x^2 + y^2). It looks like around 15 cm.
