Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Two lines are perpendicular when the product of their slopes equals 1 so slope1*slope2=1 y=ax+b, a=slope and b=yintercept In your problem you have slope1=1/3 so slope2=1/(1/3)=3 the equation of the line when you're given the slpoe and a point is yyo=slope(xx0) where (x0;y0) are the coordinates of the point given so y1=3(x2) y1=3x+6 y=3x+7
