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.
