## Need_Help_Correcting 2 years ago Which of the following coordinates is nearest to the right of the origin on a coordinate plane? A) (-3, 0) B) (5, 0) C) (2, 1) D) (4, 4)

1. Need_Help_Correcting

Hi need help i think it is 5,0

2. Need_Help_Correcting

No wait 4,4

3. NickR

the origin is (0,0)

4. Need_Help_Correcting

If you can can you help me on other problems to

5. Need_Help_Correcting

not to gve me the asnwer but help me correct them???

6. NickR

so you want x to be positive and y to be close to 0

7. Need_Help_Correcting

Well i am guessing whatever of the sets that are listed above is closiest to the right!

Hey

i just told you what to do, guessing doesnt get you anywhere

11. mark_o.

use the distant to a point formula to know which one is closer or less distance to the origin (0,0) the distance formula is $d=\sqrt{(x1-x2)^{2}+(y1-y2)^{2}}$

12. mark_o.

solve them all against the origin (0,0) for A) (-3, 0)=(x1,y1).., (0,0)=(x2,y2) $d=\sqrt{(-3-0)^{2}+(0-0)^{2}}=$

13. mark_o.

solve them from A to D and compare which one is the nearest to the right of the origin (0,0)
