## Steph_Rawr352 3 years ago Is my answer right? Write the equation of the line passing through the point (2,-1) and is perpendicular to x=-2 I got y=1; is it right?

1. hartnn

how y=1 ? , nopes.

2. Steph_Rawr352

oh/: could you maybe explain how to do this? Cause Im lost on this one lol

3. hartnn

yes, x=-2 is a vertical line, right ?

4. Steph_Rawr352

yepp

5. hartnn

the line perpendicular to vertical line is ______ line ?

6. Steph_Rawr352

horizontal? so it would be on the y axis right?

7. marjon

yeah

8. hartnn

horizontal is correct, the general equation of horizontal line is ?

9. Steph_Rawr352

|dw:1351167862228:dw|

10. Steph_Rawr352

that's what i got lol

11. Steph_Rawr352

umm y=?

12. hartnn

the point is (2,-1) not (2,1)

13. Steph_Rawr352

ohhhhh wow thank you I didn't see that :o

14. hartnn

then the equation will be ?

15. Steph_Rawr352

wait no the point is (2,1) and its perpendicular to x=-2

16. hartnn

then y=1 is correct , lol :P

17. Steph_Rawr352

haha oh ohk thanks

18. hartnn

welcome ^_^
