Hi;

Got the answer yet or how far along are you?

ok, thanks, i think the easiest is the distance formula one

One way would be to substitute the linear equation into the equation of the circle and solve for the points of intersection. Then to use the distance formula. Or you can use geogebra.

1. Points A and B are in the first quadrant, and O = (0,0) is the origin. (A point is in the first quadrant if both coordinates are positive.) If the slope of \overline{OA} is 1 and the slope of \overline{OB} is 7, and OA = OB, then compute the slope of \overline{AB}.

2. The line y = (3x + 7)/4 intersects the circle x^2 + y^2 = 25 at A and B. Find the length of chord \overline{AB}.

3. The lines y = \frac{5}{12} x and y = \frac{4}{3} x are drawn in the coordinate plane. Find the slope of the line that bisects these lines.
