# Solving simultaneous equations

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 Preview

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 ...
