Q. 33.5( 8 Votes )

The distance of the point P ( - 6, 8) from the origin is
A. 8

B.

C. 10

D. 6

Answer :

By using the distance formula:

d2 = (x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1)2



Lets calculate distance between the points (x1 , y1) and (x2 , y2)


Here we have;


x1 = - 6, x2 = 0


y2 = 8, y2 = 0


d2 = [0 – ( - 6)]2 + [0 – 8]2




d = (36 + 64)


d = 100


d = 10


So the distance between P ( - 6, 8) and origin O (0, 0) = 10
