Group Title
10.
Plans for a bridge are drawn on a coordinate grid. One girder of the bridge lies on the line y = –9x – 9. A perpendicular brace passes through the point (–1, 7). Write an equation of the line that contains the brace.
y – 1 = –1/9(x + 7)
x – 7 = –9(y + 1)
y – 7 = 1/9(x + 1)
y – 7 = –9(x + 1)

ok so what we are going to do is find the inverse equation start by using the rule The gradient of the new line is (1/grad of old line).

NickR Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so if its a horizontal line the only point we need to worry about is y correct
 one year ago

NickR Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so this is really simple your answer is y=8 http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080823113546AAsKIuB
