Measure the length of a given line segment on a coordinate plane.

On a coordinate plane, a line segment AB is presented.

The task is to measure the length of this line segment exactly to the millimetre.

The size of the coordinate plan is selectable. The length of the line segment will be automatically chosen to be about 60 percent of this size.

Regarding the orientation of the line segment presented, it can be specified that it will be

- horizontal only
- horizontal or vertical
- horizontal, vertical or diagonal
- diagonal only

The end points A and B of the line segment may be on a 10mm, 5mm or 1mm raster. In the 10mm case, they will be exactly on raster points of the coordinate plane. Optionally, points will never be on the edge of the coordinate plane.

If chosen, the origin of the coordinate system will be on the plane given.

The number of problem is selectable depending on the size of the coordinate plane.
