x2 = 0;

y2 = 3;

Hi;

What is the address (coordinates) of that blue point?

### Re: Distance

-2? Have you ever had to go someplace and said it was -4 km away? Did you try the distance formula on this problem? Your common sense and the the distance formula will show you that this distance is 2.

### Re: Distance

First of all when you speak of the distance from A which is located at (-4,-4) which line do you think is the distance of A to the y axis?

When you speak of distance to something we mean the shortest distance else any one of those line segments can apply.
