How far is the point (x, y) from the origin?

Distance from the origin Formula $$d^2= x^2 + y^2$$

(1) $$x^2 + 4 = 5 – y^2$$

$$x^2 + y^2 = 5 –4=1$$

$$x^2 + y^2 =1$$

$$d^2 =1$$ -> $$d=1$$ A Sufficient

(2) $$x^2 ≠ y^2$$

For calculating distance, magnitude or the exact value between two points is always necessary. Not sufficient Re: How far is the point (x, y) from the origin?   [#permalink] 15 Sep 2018, 02:54
