## anonymous one year ago A line passes through the point (–2, 4), and its y-intercept is (0, –6). What is the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the first line and passes through the point (5, –4)?

LOL The equation of the line, in general form, that passes through the point (1, 1) and has a y-intercept of 2 is y=-x+2, or y=2-x

The y-intercept is but a notable point, but that point has to also belong to the line and the y-axis, which is an useful tool to find equation of lines. So, we will just find the slope of the given point and the y-interception of the first line and hopefully use the point-slope formula in order to find it's equation: $m_1=\frac{ -6-4 }{ 0-(-2) }$
