Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (1, -5) and perpendicular to y =1/5 x - 10. y = 5x + 10 y = 5x y = -5x - 10 y = -5x

    we know that the slope of the equation is 1/5 but we also know that any line perpendicular to that will have a negative reciprocal slope What is the negative reciprocal of 1/5?

    (1, -5) plug that point to the answer you choose. Does the equation make sense when you plug that point in?
