Change the given equation to slope intercept form, y=mx+b That will help you determine the slope of the given line
What did you get
2y=4x+b ?

close 2y = 4x + 8 No divide everything by 2 so you get y= mx+b
did u get y=2x+4
You'll see that the slope of the given line is 2. To have a perpendicular line, the slope is the opposite reciprocal.....-1/2
Using the slope intercept formula and the point given (8,2) plug in and find b.
Are you still there
2=-4+b 6=b Now you can give the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line at the point (8,2). y=-1/2x+6
oh i see
