Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Are 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think they want you to remember about a 345 triangle, which is the quick way to solve this problem.
