Here's my question:

Find a formula for the distance from the point (x(sub 1)), (y(sub 2)) to the origin.

• Algebra -

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.
