    Your post was kind of vague but I decided to answer as I thought this might be the first time you are asking a question here. Please make sure to be much more clear about your questions in future, otherwise you may not get a response.

  • Thanks for the helpful answer. Is it true that the distance marked P in the diagram equal in magnitude? Also, it will help if you are kind enough to confirm the length of P starts from where a1 ends. If that be so, then I find some meaning breaking OM into Oa1 and a1M. That is, a1M = MN = P.

  • Root 5 I understand is length of Oa1 and not ON.

  • From another thread, the magnitude of MN appears 1 ( An insight will help why I am confused.
