Here's my question:
Find a formula for the distance from the point (x(sub 1)), (y(sub 2)) to the origin.
Thanks for your help!

Algebra 
Reiny,
both Damon and bobpursley gave you the formula to find the distance between 2 points earlier.
If the origin is one of those points, then the question becomes very easy.
Wouldn't one of the points be (0,0) ?
let me know what you got.
