So can you work out?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah

So this is similar to the parallel problem except the rule for perpendicular lines is that the gradient/slopes are inverse of each other so if you had a slope of -3 the perpendicular line would have a slope of 3.

Remember that this is not parallel. It's perpendicular to the line y = 2x+2.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the slope for the other line is -2?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
No
anonymous
  • anonymous
or -1/2
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
Yeah correct!
anonymous
  • anonymous
So it is b or c?
anonymous
  • anonymous
now i plug in the x?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
As previously check whether the y value is 3 by plugging x = 6.
anonymous
  • anonymous
c?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
Can you show the calculation steps?
anonymous
  • anonymous
y= -1/2+6
anonymous
  • anonymous
-1/2x
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 6 x -1/1 = 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok so y= -1/2x + 6 -1/2 x 6 = -3 -3 + 6 = 3 y=3
Rhystic
  • Rhystic
here did you get the 6 from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the x ?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
I have to recheck too. :D
Rhystic
  • Rhystic
youre math is a bit off. it should be b double check yotur work
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im not sure where i went wrong ;/
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
@Rhystic How can it be b?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
Kyle is right unless I am wrong.
anonymous
  • anonymous
should i open up another thread and do another?
Sachintha
  • Sachintha
Your wish. :)

You can check these by plotting them online.

no youre right my math was off sorry about that.
