I have managaed to do all of the questions upto this one without getting an answer wrong .. but this question .. i just don't quite understand it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"The point (3 , k) is a distance of 5 units from (0, 1) .

Find the two possible values of K"

What exactly do they mean by "5 units"

I am thinking that i am going to need to compare the length (3,k) to (0 ,1) plus "5 units" .And then solve for K

I don't need an answer, i need the question (push in the right direction would be nice) :rofl:

Regards,

Mo

PS: Also .. rather unrelated .. what exactly is K-12 ... because im in college in UK .. but im 16 (usual age when people enter college in UK) should my question be posted here in k-12 .. or "Homework:College level"?
