Write the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the line y = 2x + 2 and passes through the point (6, 3). y = 2x + 6 y = −one halfx + 3 y = −one halfx + 6 y = 2x + 3

    In the form $$y=mx+b$$$$y=2x+2$$ m is the slope

    perpendicular is the reciprocal of the slope.

    @abb0t The perpendicular is (-1) times the reciprocal of the slope.

    I've been trying to figure it out, but I can't. It's the last one I have to do to turn in my paper. :/

    $$m^{perpendicular}=\frac{-1}{m}$$

    Can you figure out what the perpendicular line's slope is? @tristynhart
