Textbook Problem

A certain corner of a room is selected as the origin of a rectangular coordinate system. If a fly is crawling on an adjacent wall at a point having coordinates (2.0, 1.0), where the units are meters, what is the distance of the fly from the corner of the room?

To determine
The distance of the fly from the corner of the room.

Explanation

Given Info: The x coordinate of the fly is 2m and the y coordinate of the fly is 1m

Explanation:

From Pythagorean Theorem, the formula to calculate the distance is,

d=x2+y2

  • d is the distance of the fly from origin,
  • xandy Are the coordinate of the fly

Substitute 2m for x , 1m for y to find d
