Refer to diagram:

y=4 is perpendicular bisector of JK
Hence distance between Point J and line y = 6 = distance between line y and point K.
Point K(6,-2)
Distance between point K and origin is 6^2+2^2= 2\sqrt{10}

OA B.

Please let me know the OA.

coordinates of point k are (6,-2).
distance of J = 6 from y=4 means distance of 6 from y=4 for K gives y = -2.

thus 36+4 = distance from origin ^ 2
40 ^(1/2) = B

Should be B. x^2= 2^2 + 6^2

The point k is (6, -2)
Therefore, OK is root of 6^2 + 2^2 = root 40 or 2*root10

Bunuel Please shift the question in Problem Solving thread. This seems to be here by mistake.

Answer:B
1- We have J(6,10) and the line y = 4 is the perpendicular bisector of segment JK ⇒ Intersection point of the two lines is the midpoint M(6,4) ⇒ k is (6,-2)
2- Taking the point on the X-axis L(6,0) ⇒ we have a right triangle OLK with O(0,0), L(6,0), and K(6,-2)
Finally the hypotenuse OK^2=OL^2+LA^2=6^2+2^2=36+4=40 ⇒ OK=sqrt(40)=2sqrt(10)
