Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=mx+b If you know the equation of the perpendicular line, then the SLOPE of the line whose equation you are trying to find will be opposite. So if the perpendicular line had a slope of 2/3, then the slope of the line whose equation you are looking for would be 2/3. dw:1437162461963:dw Hope that helps!
