    Write equation slope intercept line satisfying the following condition. The line passes though (-6, 4) and is perpendicular to the line that has an x intercept 3 and a y intercept -9

    Solve each system or state the system is inconsistent or dependent.
    x/2= y+8/4, x+3/2=y+5/4

    Solve by using the substitution method.
    x/4 - y/4=-1
    x+4y=-9.

    Solution:

    Slope of line that has an x intercept 3 and a y intercept -9 = -9/-3 = 3
    Thus, slope of required line = -1/3

    Equation
    y -4= -1/3(x--6)

    That is, y = -x/3 - 2.

    Solve each ...
