PROBLEM :
The Jones Trucking Company tracks the location of each of its trucks on a grid similar to an (x, y) plane. The home office is at the location (0, 0). Read the coordinates of truck A and the coordinates of truck B and determine which is closer to the office.
EXPLANATION:
The first line of the data set for this problem is an integer representing the number of collections of data that follow. Each collection contains 4 integers: the x-coordinate and then the y-coordinate of truck A followed by the x-coordinate and then the y-coordinate of truck B.All letters are upper case. The output is to be formatted exactly like that for the sample output given below.
The x-coordinate is in the range –20 … 20. The y-coordinate is in the range –20 … 20.The distance between point # 1 with coordinates (x1, y1) and point #2 with coordinates (x2, y2) .

SOLUTIONS:

Summary

#include<stdio.h>
#include<math.h>

int main ()
{
int dataSet;
scanf ("%d", &dataSet);

while ( dataSet-- ) {

    double xA, yA;
    scanf ("%lf %lf", &xA, &yA);

    double xB, yB;
    scanf ("%lf %lf", &xB, &yB);

    double distance_A = sqrt ( xA * xA + yA * yA );
    double distance_B = sqrt ( xB * xB + yB * yB );

    if ( distance_A > distance_B )
        printf ("B IS CLOSER\n");

    else
        printf ("A IS CLOSER\n");
}

return 0;

}
