    Write the equation of a line that is: perpendicular to 9x + 3y = 15 and goes through the point (-6, 7)

    Programs are good, but its important to know how to do it by hand.

    you have to multiply them by -1

    Umm, sort of on the right track. Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals. Do you know what that means?

    Your work is correct. But you said the slope is 3. Your work shows something different.

    No prob. SO, now that you know the slope of your line is -3, what is the slope of its perpendicular line?

  31. Tahmina

    \[-3 *1/3\]

    wait what about the points (-6,7)

  34. Brittni0605

    No, remember if the slope of your line is -6, the slope of its perpendicular line is the negative reciprocal (1/6)

    wiat whats the slope of the perspendicular then

    *perpendicular

  37. Brittni0605

    Perpendicular slope is the negative reciprocal of the slope of your line

  38. Tahmina

    so the slope of my line is -3 that means my perpendicular slope is -3 *1/3 rite?
