Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if a line is perpedicular to another line, the product of their slopes will equals to 1 suppose m is the slope. from 2x + y = 5 > y=2x+5 , we get m1= 2 m1*m2 = 1 (2) * m2 =1 > m2= 1/2 so the slope of the other line is 1/2 then the equation of the other line will be y=(1/2)x +b we know that the line passes through (−2,5) so > 5=(1/2)(2) + b 5=1+b > b=6 hence the equation of the line is y=(1/2)x + 6
