    Do you know how to find the distance between 2 points? there is a formula you use: \[ d= \sqrt{ (x_2-x_1)^2 + (y_2-y_1)^2 } \] You have point P at (-1,2) and point O at (0,0) can you do this? Here is a video that might help you http://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/ck12-algebra-1/v/distance-formula BTW, the answer is not 2
