Ok so all you need is a point and a slope. You already have your point (0,6) and now all you need is the slope which you can get from this line: 2x -5=y

where m is the slope. Can you give it one more shot and tell me the slope?

great but since the line we are looking for is perpendicular to this the slope actually has to be a negative reciprocal. That's fancy math talk of saying - 1/2

  • anonymous
now we use the point slope form. \[y-y_1=m(x-x_1)\] where \[(x_1,y_1)=(0,6)\]\[m=-\frac{1}{2}\]

plug that in and solve for y if you have to.

Get it?

y= -1/2 x-6
anonymous
  • anonymous
y= -1/2 x+6 actually because you add 6 to both sides. But close enough good job!
