    Use the distance formula.

    The distance between two points (x_1,y_1) and (x_2,y_2) is given by

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


    now, can you do your problem?

    the distant between A(x_o,y_o) ,B(x_1,y_1) given by

    Distance=\sqrt{(x_1-x_o)^2+(y_1-y_o)^2}

    Edit:someone reply before me ...
