Given points $$(x_1, y_1)$$ and $$(x_2, y_2)$$, the slope can be found by getting rise over run, and the distance using the distance formula (which comes from the Pythagorean theorem: \begin{align} m &= \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\\ d &= \sqrt{(y_2-y_1)^2 + (x_2-x_1)^2} \end{align}

Can you figure out the answer from that?
