8-48.
1. On graph paper, plot the points A(4, 1) and B(10, 9). 8-48 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

1. What is the distance between points A and B? That is, what is AB?

2. What are the coordinates of the point that is of the way from point A to point B on AB?

3. If point C is at (10, 1), what is mCAB? Show all work.

What is the length of each side of the slope triangle for the line segment?

Use the Pythagorean Theorem.

$6^2 + 8^2 = AB^2$

$\tan{\angle CAB} = \frac{8}{6}$
