Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For perpendicular lines m1*m2=1 y = –3x + 2 So m2=1/3=1/3 y=1/3 x+c when x=6, y=1 1=6/3+c 1=2+c c=1 \[y=\frac{1}{3}x1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is y=1/3 x1. Yes they will intersect but the angle at which this happens is 90 degrees so it is perpendicular
