Given x^2+y^2= K^2 since distance between (0,0) and (x,y)= k
distance between (0,0) and (4x,4y) = (4x)^2 + (4y)^2 = 16K^2
hence distance between (0,0) and (4x,4y)= 4k

Using hypotenuse formula,
for coordinates (x,y),
x^2 + y^2 = k^2

for coordinates (4x,4y),
16x^2 + 16y^2 = 16 (x^2 + y^2) = 16k^2

So the hypotenuse will be 4k

C

SQR of x^2 + y^2 = k

SQR of (4x)^2 + (4y)^2 = 4 * (SQR of x^2 + y^2) =4k
