The distance formula will be involved in this question, which is:

D = sqrt{(x2 - x1)^2 + (y2 - y1)^2}

Two points will be used to plug into this equation: The origin, which is (0, 0) and (x, y).

Since the first point is the origin, then both zeros are x1 and y1, so the distance formula can be rewritten for this problem as:

D = sqrt{(x2)^2 + (y2)^2}

x2 and y2 represent (x, y) respectively. So now you just need to figure out numbers for both x and y to plug into the distance formula that will give a distance of 2 units or less. For instance, if we were to plug in (sqrt(2), sqrt(2)) for (x, y), that would give us 2.

D = sqrt{ [sqrt(2)]^2 + [sqrt(2)]^2 } = sqrt(2 + 2) = sqrt(4) = 2

Is the answer really 13/81? That seems a little bit strange for this problem, but I'll get back to it after I finish school.
