I MEAN 1/2

So... isn't that already slope intercept form?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm really confused...
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats the slope intercept form of the line it is perpendicular to. you're trying to find the other line.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, I have to reciprocal it?

What is the slope of y = 1/4x-6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
OH. I see nao.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Pshhh.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it becomes y=-1/2-6 correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, you have to take the slope, reciprocal it and change the sign, and then use that plus the point you have to find the equation of the other line
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh wait. I'm a derp. I just realized that :P
anonymous

y-4=-2(x-6) yes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, not distribute the -2 and after that add the 4 to both sides and you're done
anonymous

y=-2x+16?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct
Mertsj
  • Mertsj
How can that be right when the slope of the given line is 1/4 and so the slope of the perpendicular is -4???
anonymous
  • anonymous
She said that was a typo, changed it to 1/2
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you're done. answer is y=-2x+16
