Guess I didn't even understand the question. GMATinsight eraborate on your answer how you applied 5 to get the new coordinate. Posted from my mobile device

Posted from my mobile deviceThe question meant that a frog jumps with jumo length 5 units but it lands at a point where the coordinates are integers. Since 5 units is diagonal length from origin to (3,4) or (4,3) so these are the only two choices that frog has to jump at. But if it jumped at (4,3) then the final condition may not be met hence we choose that the point jumped at is ((3,4) next it again jumps 5 units away and finally it should be 1 unit away after the third jump so xcoordinate must be 6 units away before the third jump hence points jumped at are listed as mentioned in above mentioned solution

Posted from my mobile deviceHi, I wanted to understand, that how did you shortlist the points in the random plane? Lets say had it not been 5 points but 6 points jump, so how should i approach this question mathematically?
