Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so what do you know about the slopes of perpendicular lines?

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to multiply them by 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Umm, sort of on the right track. Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals. Do you know what that means?

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No can u be a little clear on that?

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you mean B mutiply 3 *1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got 3 because its the slope isnt it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay whats the slope then wait you need to find the slope first rite?

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, its not 3. Show me your work.

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your work is correct. But you said the slope is 3. Your work shows something different.

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh sorry its negative 3 thanks for showing that

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No prob. SO, now that you know the slope of your line is 3, what is the slope of its perpendicular line?

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait what about the points (6,7)

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, remember if the slope of your line is 6, the slope of its perpendicular line is the negative reciprocal (1/6)

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wiat whats the slope of the perspendicular then

Brittni0605

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Perpendicular slope is the negative reciprocal of the slope of your line

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope of my line is 3 that means my perpendicular slope is 3 *1/3 rite?

Brittni0605
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, you're not multiplying anything.

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my perpendicular lines slope is 1/3 rite

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do i substitute with y=mx+b

Tahmina

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can u check my work???/

Brittni0605
