ans:

triangle ABC is a right angle triangle.. so the ortho-center of the triangle will be the vertex where the right angle made..which is vertex A (3,4) ( you can figure it out by drawing this triangle geometrically or by checking slopes. )

so ortho center is A(3,4)
distance b/w A and O (origin) = ( 3^2 + 4^2 )1/2 ( by distance formula )
= 5
