ok, what is the slope of y = (3/4)x - 3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so am I taking the (3/4)*4, o am I needing to flip it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the slope is 3/4 y = m x + b m is the slope so what is the negative reciprocal of 3/4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
almost... have to negate it too
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
negative means change the sign, reciprocal means flip it and that is so much mess, they just say "inverse" and inverse gets very important a couple years from now in your math studies
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so its -4/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
anyway, the slope of the perpendicular line is -4/3 so all we need now is the y intercept so here is where you plug your point into y = -4/3 x + k and solve for k
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok which I get 3=-5 1/3 + k?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, but you have to solve for k
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 1/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, but they don't usually come out like that but when they do, 25/3 is better
anonymous
  • anonymous
so use that k in y = -4/3 x + k and you should have the right answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thank you so much
