Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You want the equation of a line that is perpendicular to x+y=5 and that passes through the point (2,5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well since we put x+y=5 into y=mx+b form y=x+5 we can see the slope is 1. a line perpendicular to that would have a slope of 1. So use that and your point to find the equation. y+5=1(x2) simplify that
