Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, I thought OP would do it, but I will. First, we have four points that are at distance 4 from \((1,3)\):\[(1,7) \\ (1,1) \\ (5,3) \\ (3,3)\]There is another point but we'd look at it later.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, you just have to figure out the slopes where \(y = mx + 2\) passes through these points. Can you do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are actually many more points. There are infinite such points in fact. O_O
