Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so the slope intercept equation is y=mx + b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but first you should isolate y in the equation you already have. So you can isolate the rate of change aka the mx part.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09y = 2x  12 then: y = (2/9)x  12/9 to simplify: y =(2/9)x  4/3 aka 1 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then, as its perpendicular, you'll know that the slope of the opposite line is the negative recipricol. in this case, 9/2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then, input (2,3) respectfully in the x and y places in the now modified equation. so you get: 3 = (9/2)(2) + b so: 3 = 9 + b then: 6 = b
