Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you recall the formula for the slope of a line given 2 points on the line?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So use it to find the slope of the side AC.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you have that you can find the perpendicular slope by taking the negative reciprocal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 is the slope of AC

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what is the slope perpendicular to that?

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what would be the equatin

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, negative reciprocal is perpendicular.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think so. It should be \(y+2 = \frac{1}{3}(x4)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got y+2=1/3x4/3

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is that right then i subract 2 from both sides

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm.. it's pretty nearly the same problem, just with different numbers

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0draw 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.

anonymous

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"Find the equation of the line tangent to the circle at the point P"

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What does that sentence mean?

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it means that the line is touching line p

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The line is touching the point P that's on the circle, but what else do you know about it?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, specifically how does it relate to the radius of the circle through the point P?

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that 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.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is the slope. now use the point p to find the equation like we did before

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be y+6=2/3(x+1)

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought P was (1,6), so it would be y6 = 2/3(x+1)

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah sorry your right

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if i put it in slope intecept orm it would be y=2/3x+6.67

toxicsugar22
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but is the 6.67 right or can i put it in a fraction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can make it a fraction

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How many 3rds are there in 6 wholes?

toxicsugar22
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait i think we messed up it would be y+6=2/3(X1)

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think that is right

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think that is right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the point P is (1,6) then the equation would be y6=2/3(x+1) The formula for pointslope is: \[yy_1 = m(xx_1)\] Where \(x_1,y_1\) are the x,y values of your point

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would it be y=2/3x+3/20

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can tell because the 3/20 is less than 1, but we added 6 to both sides, so it should be bigger than 1
