    The distance between two points

    A=(x_1,y_1),\quad B=(x_2,y_2)

    is given by

    d = \sqrt{(x_1-x_2)^2+(y_1-y_2)^2}

    as a direct application of Pythagorean theorem.

    In your case, the points are

    A=(6,-8),\quad B=(0,0)

    So, the distance is

    d = \sqrt{(6-0)^2+(-8-0)^2}=\sqrt{36+64}=\sqrt{100}=10

    P(6,4) means  

    6 on x axis

    on y axis

    therefore by pythagoras theoram

    36+64=[hypotenus]2

    hypotenus=root 100

    therfore distance between the origin and the point is root 100
