Lol this is FOR REAL my last question of today :) sorry guys!
Choose the slopeintercept equation of the line that passes through the point shown and is perpendicular to the line shown.
y = 3/2x
y = 3/2x  6
y = 2/3x 5/3
y = 2/3x  13/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is (2,3) the point that the perpendicular line is supposed to run through? I think you're almost there... you have the perp slope as 5/3, and you know the point, and it sounds like you know the formula... the point slope form of a line is y  y1 = m(x x1) where (x1, y1) is your point, and m is your slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it's y  (3) = (5/3)(x2) y + 3 = 5/3x 10/3 y = 5/3 x 19/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh... that's not up there. Hm. Is that the problem? The way you posted this, it didn't show the original line or the point. to run the perp line through.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem is your slope. The actual line looks like it goes through (5,0), but it doesn't... it's just close. The actual real slope is 2/3. So your perp slope is 3/2 And your equation becomes: y  (3) = 3/2 (x  2) y + 3 = 3/2 x + 3 y = 3/2 x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would have gotten it correct if you had been able to read that graph better. Your approach seemed fine, but since you read the slope incorrectly, the answers weren't working out to match your choices.
