Let $$O$$ be the origin. Points $$P$$ and $$Q$$ lie in the first quadrant. The slope of line segment $$\overline{OP}$$ is $$1$$ and the slope of line segment $$\overline{OQ}$$ is $$7.$$ If $$OP = OQ,$$ then compute the slope of line segment $$\overline{PQ}.$$

Note: The point $$(x,y)$$ lies in the first quadrant if both $$x$$ and $$y$$ are positive.

Are you sure there's no diagram?  A diagram would really help.

There was no diagram given, but you can use Desmos to graph if you want. (It's what I did)

I worked it out - the slope is -2/5.
