Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0almost aroub  if the slope of a line is m then the slope of perpendicular = 1/m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the slope of the perpendicular linr wiil be 1/(5/6) which simplifies to 6/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ya i think your right because if u simplified it it will be = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the 5/6 is the coefficient of x i.e. (6/5)x the equation u want is y = (6/5)x + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the general form of the slopeintercept equation is y = mx +c where m = slope of the line and c is the intercept on the yaxis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Write the equation of a line in slopeintercept form that is perpendicular to 3x+2y=6 and passes through the point (3, 0).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first manipulate the equation to get it in y=mx+c form divide by 2 (because we have 2x): 3x/2 + y = 3 y = (3/2)x + 3 so we can see that the slope = (3/2) and the intercept on the y axis 3. slope of perpndclr. = 1/(3/2) = 2/3 so our equation is y = (2/3)x + 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to get rid of the fraction we can multiply each term of the equation b 3 3y = 2x + 9 this is equivalent to the fractional equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the questions are a bit strange though  you do not need the coordinates of the point to work out the problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you have a similar problem which gives you the equation and a point on the line you use another form of the formula i e y  y1 = m(x  x1) where m = slope of the line and (x1,y1) are the coordinates of the given point

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes this is the easiest way to do it i agree:)
