What is the slope of the line passing through the point (3, −4) and perpendicular to the line y = 3x + 5? Write your answer as a fraction.
So the line is perpendicular to y = 3x + 5 that means the slope of the new line is the inverse of that slope. So the slope of the new like is -1/3(x)
y=-1/3x-3 and here is the equation for the line
Use y = mx + b to solve for the y-intercept (b) Just plug in the values (x,y) and the new slope m.
Then you'll be able to write it in y = mx +b form
