    OK, when you get to calculus this is a good problem for vectors, for now perhaps convert from polar coordinates to rectangular coordinates, then distance formula. Now, what you have is (r, theta). To get rectangular x=r cos theta, y=r sin theta.

    so would the x and y coordinates come out to (0, 5)?
