analystic geometry problems1. 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}.

Re: analystic geometry problemsThanks i now know how to do 1 and 3 but i still don't really get no. 2, can you please explain how to do it Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #4 20130824 13:44:47
Re: analystic geometry problemsOne 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. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130824 13:46:33
Re: analystic geometry problemsok, thanks, i think the easiest is the distance formula one Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #6 20130825 06:51:32
