The distance between two points

is given by

as a direct application of Pythagorean theorem.

In your case, the points are

So, the distance is

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
