1: Write the standard form of the equation of the line passing through the point (1,-2) and perpendicular to the line y=-3/2x-2
2: The line through A(-3,-4) and B(-2,Y) is perpendicular to a line with a slope -1/7. Find y© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:12 pm ad1c9bdddf
1. First of all we need to find the slope of first equation. Formula of slope of an equation y=ax-b
is m = -a/b
thus for the equation y=-3/2x-2 our slope is m= - (-3/2)/1 = 3/2
A line which is perpendicular to that ...
A line equation is found given a point and perpendicular line. A point is found given another point and a perpendicular line.
