    For part b. a line is perpendicular is m2=-1/m1 We have y =3 where m1=0 since y=0*x+3 The line perpendicular is m2=-1/m1=-1/0 which is undefined So y-y1=m(x-x1) y-y1=-1(x-c)/0 0*(y-y1)=-1(x-c) 0=-x+c x=c where c can be any number

    so my answer for 1.) is " any real number" and for 2.) is "m=undefined" am I right?

    For part a. a line is parallel if m2=m1 We have x=2 where m1=1/0 since y=(x-2)/0 The line parallel is m2=m1=1/0 which is undefined So y-y1=m(x-x1) y-y1=1(x-c)/0 0*(y-y1)=-1(x-c) 0=-x+c x=c where c can be any number
