Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Choose the slopeintercept equation of the line that passes through the point (5, 1) and is perpendicular to y = 5/2x + 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They have the same slope since they are perpendicular. so I know (5, 1) with a slope of 5/2 has something to do with the equation, but what happens next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2they dont have the same slope, that is when they are parallel. For perpendicular the slope is opposite

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2its a negative reciprocal, so can you figure it out what the slope is from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, ok. So I would have a slope of 2/5, and then what?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2close.. m=2/5 then you use your pointinterecpt form: yy=m(xx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y  (1) = 2/5[(x  (5)] y + 1 = 2/5x + 5 y = 2/5x  4? ^ That's not one of my options. So I did it wrong...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thats close but you need to distribute the (2/5) to the 5 as well

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is because the x+5 is in parentheses. so the 2/5 applies to both pieces

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or (x(5)) however you want to think about it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y  (1) = 2/5[(x  (5)] y  (1) = 2/5x + ??? How would I distribute the 5? Wouldn't it be 2/5*5 Which is 10/5 = 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes! perfect. so you would have (y(1))=2/5x2 then you just need to y by itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y + 1 = 2/5x  2 y = 2/5x  3  1 y = 2/5x  3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yep! That should be your answer.
