you want two different equations? one for parallell and one for perpendicular? Note: parallel has same slope, and perpendicular has negative reciprocal of slope. The primary equation in slope intercept form should be y = 2/7x + 2

So using the equation formula. (yy1)=m(xx1). You plug in your points from (4,1) and the slope you need (see above for parallel or perpendicular). Parallel. (y+1)=2/7(x+4) : use algebra and get x and y on left of equation. Note, the +4 and +1 are due to (1) and (4). Perpendicular. Same thing in a sense, but the slope must be the negative reciprocal of the primary equation (line). (y+1)=7/2(x+4) again, use algebra and get the x and y on left side of equation.

Therefore: Parallel: 7y+2x=15 Perpendicular: 2y7x=26
