# Right triangle from axes

A line segment has its ends on the coordinate axes and forms a triangle of area equal to 36 square units. The segment passes through the point ( 5,2). What is the slope of the line segment?

## Correct answer:

Tips for related online calculators

The line slope calculator is helpful for basic calculations in analytic geometry. The coordinates of two points in the plane calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of the segment, intersections of the coordinate axes, etc.
