Line s passes through the points (2, 7) and (6, 1). Line t passes through the point (5, 2) and is perpendicular to line s. What is the equation for line t?

    What is the equation for the slope of a line if you have 2 points on the line?

    \[Slope = \frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x} = \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2 - x_1}\] Right.

    So use the two points on the line s to find the slope of s.

    If you are not feeling well, you should be resting, not doing math.

    You pick two points that are on the line you are solving the slope for. Those points are \((x_1,y_1)\text{ and } (x_2,y_2)\)
