Do you recall the formula for the slope of a line given 2 points on the line?
yes
So use it to find the slope of the side AC.

Once you have that you can find the perpendicular slope by taking the negative reciprocal
which is the slope of the altitude from B to the side AC. Then with that slope you can write the equation of the line with that slope that intersects B.
im guessing -3
is that right
-3 is the slope of AC
ok
So what is the slope perpendicular to that?
so what would be the equatin
1/-3
right
No, negative reciprocal is perpendicular.
so 1/3
So now, you have a point B and the slope. Do you know the formula for the equation of the line given a point and a slope?
y=1/3x+2
is that right
is thais right
I don't think so. It should be \(y+2 = \frac{1}{3}(x-4)\)
i think we put it in slope intecept form
sure, but I don't think if you do you'll get the answer you had before
ok
vut can u help me get me put that in slope inetcept form
Well start by distributing the 1/3, then subtract 2 from both sides
y+2=1/3(x-4) can u help me put tis in slpo intecept orm
can u help me
did you distribute the 1/3?
how do u do -4/3-2
convert -2 into an improper fraction (with a 3 in the denominator)
i got y+2=1/3x-4/3
is that right then i subract 2 from both sides
yes
then i get y=1/3x-3.3
is this write
-3.33333 = -10/3
thanks you so much
The center of a circle is the point C(2,4), and P(-1,6) is a point on the circle. Find the equation of the line tangent to the circle at the point P.
can u help with this
umm.. it's pretty nearly the same problem, just with different numbers
ok
but can u help me
draw the picture of what they're describing, and recall what we did in this last problem and see if you can figure out how the problems are similar.
i tried please can u help me
what did you try?
i tried doing it but idid not get it
doing the pomble
can u help me
what did you _do_ when you tried?
idid (2,4) and (- 1and 6) and added the x and y
please can u help, I will be greatful to you
what were you trying to find when you did that?
idk i thought that was how u do that
do what?
the question
Are you trying to find something?
yes the equation
the equation of what?
The center of a circle is the point C(2,4), and P(-1,6) is a point on the circle. Find the equation of the line tangent to the circle at the point P
I know what the problem says, I'm asking you what you think. You do think right? ;)
i am finding it difficult please can u help me
What are you trying to find here?
the equation i guess
The equation of what?
the slope
the slope
"Find the equation of the line tangent to the circle at the point P"
What does that sentence mean?
i think it means that the line is touching line p
is that right
is this righ t
The line is touching the point P that's on the circle, but what else do you know about it?
idk
well, specifically how does it relate to the radius of the circle through the point P?
is the slope -3/2
is it right
that is the slope of the radius (line between the center and P). The trick is to realize that the slope of the tangent will be perpendicular to the radius.
so it will be 2/3
is that right
that is the slope. now use the point p to find the equation like we did before
so we do (-1,-6)
so it would be y+6=2/3(x+1)
is that right
I thought P was (-1,6), so it would be y-6 = 2/3(x+1)
oh yeah sorry your right
if i put it in slope intecept orm it would be y=2/3x+6.67
is this right
yeah
but is the 6.67 right or can i put it in a fraction
you can make it a fraction
how can u show me
How many 3rds are there in 6 wholes?
so id it 20/3
wait i think we messed up it would be y+6=2/3(X-1)
i think that is right
i think that is right
If the point P is (-1,6) then the equation would be y-6=2/3(x+1) The formula for point-slope is: \[y-y_1 = m(x-x_1)\] Where \(x_1,y_1\) are the x,y values of your point
so would it be y=2/3x+3/20
no
I can tell because the 3/20 is less than 1, but we added 6 to both sides, so it should be bigger than 1
y=2/3x+20/3
yes
thanks
