    I don't know why this course introduces these strange A and B formulas

    Don't they explain why they introduce such formulas when you're in class?

    The given line y=2x has slope 2 so the slope of the perpendicular is -1/2. Also the perpendicular contains (5,15). So let us plug that information into the equation they gave us for the perpendicular. y=A+B(x-3) 15=A-1/2(5-3) 15=A-1/2(2) 15=A-1 16=A So the answer is A = 16 and B = -1/2

    For some reason, I thought the point was 5,3.
