Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember that this is not parallel. It's perpendicular to the line y = 2x+2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so y= 1/2x + 6 1/2 x 6 = 3 3 + 6 = 3 y=3
