This question is killing me! Someone walk me through it step by step?
A small radio transmitter broadcasts in a 34 mile radius. If you drive along a straight line from a city 45 miles north of the transmitter to a second city 44 miles east of the transmitter, during how much of the drive will you pick up a signal from the transmitter?

Looks to me like none of the time. He is always more that 34 miles from the transmitter.

The driving route can be fixed by the points: (0, 45) and (44, 0)
The transmitting area is defined by the circle:
\[x^2 + y^2 = 34^2\]
So write the equation for the line and substitute that into the equation of the circle to get the two points and then find the distance between the two pints.
