Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to find the angle the normal makes with the positive xaxis....& I have to rewrite it each equation in the normal for and solve the length of the normal... 1. 3x2y1=0 2. 5x+y12=0 3. 4x+3y4=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1normal to these lines?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea..idk what it means either. :/ It said: find the angle the normal makes with the positive x–axis. Hint: You should first rewrite each equation in normal form and solve for the length of the normal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see that normal from of a line is xsino + ysino =P whee o is angle made with positive x axis and p is the length of normal from origin to the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you find a line perpendicular to the given lines and passing through origin?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slope of a line is (coefficient of x)/(coefficient of y). and m18m2 =1 where m1 is the slope of the given line and m2 of the normal. write the normal line in the form of y=mx+c. substitute x,y=0,0 as it passes through the origin. this will give you value of c. plug this value back into the equation. suppose that the line is ax+by+c=0. thelength of perpendicular from x1,y1 is ax1 +by1+c/sqrt(a^2 + b^2). susbtitute 0,0 in place of x1,y1. this will give you value of perpendicular. i am still working on the angle. i seem to know it but cant recall it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just tell me if you get the length of the normal. or i'll you refer you to a site.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its alright sweety. i was as poorer at math. chill!! http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090817231959AASOXEf look at this to find the line perpendicular to the given line. and then look at my explanation. and i am not following the hint you gave me. i dont follow it. this method of mine makes more sense to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slope of a line=tano. so arctan[(coefficient of x)/coefficient of y)] will give you the angle.
