The question: List all the points that have whole-number coordinates and are
a) 5 units from the origin
b) 10 units from the origin
for a, since its 5 units I used the line segement formula, l^2=[(x2-x1)^2]+[(y2-y1)^2], and set 25 equal to the formula, but I got 25=(x2)^2 + (y2)^2.
To find the whole number coordinates is it trial and error or is there some way to find the values of x2 and y2 that would give whole number coordinates.
