the line y=-2 is straight across the page; what would a perp line to it that passes thru (-1,-4) be?

so, y=-2 is the line straight across and then (1,-4) goes straight through

x = -1 is the only perp line to y=-2; that goes thru (-1,-4)

right, they 'meet' at -1
amistre64
  • amistre64
correct...kind of :) they meet at (-1,-2)

OK, so they meet at (-1,-2). The equation to y=-2 would be x=-1

  • amistre64
exactly :)
