What is the distance of the point P(4,3) from the origin?

Can you also tell me how?

The given point is P (4, 3).

Distance of point P from x-axis is 3 units.

Distance of point P from y-axis is 4 units.

Distance of point P from origin = OP, where O is the origin.

From P draw line A perpendicular to x-axis.

You can observe that OAP is a right angled triangle with OA = 4 units, AP = 3 units.

So, using Pythagoras theorem,

OP^{2} = 4^{2} + 3^{2} = 25 => OP = 5 units

Hence, the distance of point P from origin is 5 units.
