Choose the slope-intercept equation of the line that passes through the point (-5, -1) and is perpendicular to y = 5/2x + 2. A. y = 2/5x + 1 B. y = -5/2x -27/2 C. y = -2/5x - 3 D. y = 5/2x + 23/2

oh. i forgot how to do this then

have you seen this equation before: y=mx+b?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
m is the slope is If you look at the equation y = 5/2x + 2, can you see how it's the same format?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
So if you compare it to the format of y=mx+b, and if "m" represents the slope, can you find the slope of y = 5/2x + 2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is the answer D?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no

But you are close.

The question asked for a perpendicular line to y = 5/2x + 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
That means that it will be negative inverse
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it will look like -2/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhhhh okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
so its B
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's C
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh thank you. Im really thankful of you helping me. :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep!
