    Answer:

    C. 2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have a circle described on the triangle. If one side of the triangle is the diameter of the circle, then the triangle is the right triangle.

    Therefore m∠B = 90°.

    AB is perpendicular to BC.

    Let

    k: y = m₁x + b₁ and l: y = m₂x + b₂

    l ⊥ k ⇔ m₁m₂ = -1 ⇒ m₂ = – 1/m₁

    We have the slope of BC m₁ = – 1/2.

    Therefore the slope of AB m₂ = – 1/(- 1/2) = 2

    took test on plato its right 🙂
