The formula for the length OP or |p| is a kind of 3 dimensional form of Pythagoras' theorem.

Here's how the working would go if we had a = 4 and b = 3 and c = 12.

Using Pythagoras' theorem in the yellow right-angled triangle we get 

OQ = the square root of (16 + 9) = 5


and then, using Pythagoras' theorem in the vertical green right-angled triangle, we get

OP = the square root of (25 + 144) = 13.

Alternatively, in just one step of working, we have


OP = the square root of (16 + 9 + 144) = 13.
