    do not understand the question?? slope = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) or rise over run

    ok theres a line 5 units long that is not drawn yet. it starts at (0,0) and goes on. But we don't know the slope and thats what you have to find.

    so the length of the line is 5. from distance equation for some point (x,y): sqrt(x^2 +y^2) = 5 i don't think there is enough info, the slope could be anything

    Are you suppose to draw a line 5 long with a slope between 0 and 1? Try points (0,0) and (4,3) for the start and end points. use the distance formula to show it has length 5

    find its slope to show it is positive, and less than 1

    I think they want you to remember about a 3-4-5 triangle, which is the quick way to solve this problem.
