Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, this one wants to be tricky. They give you slope intercept and you have to find it in standard. I will start out answering by asking you, Do you know the difference between slope intercept and standard?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I tell you the slope of the perpendicular is going to be \(\frac{ 5 }{ 2 }\) what would be your choice?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The given equation is y = (2/5) x +9 Hence the perpendicular line will have the slope is \(\dfrac{5}{2}\) Then, the required line will have the equation : \(y = \dfrac{5}{2}x +b\) \(2y = 5x+2b\\2y+5x =2b\) That means the right hand side must be an even number. You have 2 options whose the left hand side are the same \(2y+5x\) But only one whose the right side is an even number. That is ....... ????
